Here’s what KOT have to say about Harambee Stars’ stuttering performance

Following an impressive start to their campaign, Harambee Stars are now struggling to score goals at the ongoing Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup.

Kenya, under the tutelage of newly appointed coach Paul Put, got off to a winning start beating Rwanda 2-0 at Bukhungu Stadium in Kakamega before being held to barren draws by Libya and Zanzibar at Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos.

These three results mean Kenya has, alongside, Libya, Tanzania and South Sudan, scored the least goals of the nine teams participating in the competition.

Strangely though, the government has praised the team for ‘improved’ performances.

Among those who’ve lauded the team’s performance is Nairobi governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko and his Machakos counterpart Dr Alfred Mutua.

The two governors have pledged a Sh2 million token in the event the national team goes all the way and lifts the trophy.
