Curtains have come down on a five-day coaching course, born out of a partnership between Football Kenya Federation and Inmates Premier League, at the Kamiti Prison.
The course brought together 44 inmates from the prison, some of whom graced the Kenyan Premier League and National Super League during their playing days.
Four Prison Staff also benefited, with former Ulinzi Stars defender Geoffrey Kokoyo and former Mathare United midfielder Dennis Nzomo also gracing the course.
“I want to thank the Football Kenya Federation for bringing coaching education very close to us,” said Tedium Rodgers, an inmate at the prison, who once featured for Mathare United.
“With this education, we can be of benefit to the community once we are done with our sentences,” he added.
The course is part of Football Kenya Federation’s long term football development agenda, which has coaching education as a key pillar. 2000 coaches, both men and women, have since benefitted from such courses in the past year.
