Kenyan Premier League side, Western Stima has parted ways with coach Paul Ogai after a spate of poor results and replaced him with Salim Babu.
Ogai leaves the Kisumu based Power-Men nine months after he replaced Ugandan Richard Makumbi, he helped guide the team back to the Kenyan Premier at the end of 2018.
Stima started the 2018/19 season strongly but a run of 12 league matches without a win has seen the former Palos and Agrochemicals coach shown the door.
“Ogai has left the club. Things didn’t work out for him and the club has decided to relieve him of his duties because the team is slipping into the relegation zone,” a source close the club disclosed.
Former Sony Sugar FC head coach Salim Babu is set to replace Ogai as the side seeks to avoid a drop back to the second tier.
“Babu is the new coach. He has already agreed on personal terms and he’ll take over immediately,” the source added.
Stima last won a league game on February, 17th 2019. Ogai’s last assignment as Stima boss was the match against Nzoia Sugar on Wednesday that ended in a barren draw. Stima is home to Ugandan trio of Joel Abaliwano, Junior Mukisa and Villa Omrachan.
