Radio host Jacob Ghost Mulee has opened up for the first time since leaving the Harambee Stars coaching job on Wednesday, September 15.
Mulee, while speaking on his show on Radio Jambo on Thursday, disclosed he had been going through a difficult period in the build-up to the termination of his contract.
The tactician left his role along with alongside his assistant Twahir Muhidin and goalkeeping coach Haggai Azande, with the Football Kenya Federation disclosing the two parties decided to part ways ‘amicably’.
According to Mulee, nothing was the same since he jetted back to the country a few months ago after attending to his brother, who was scheduled for surgery in India.
“I have been going through a tough time. I was in India for two months with my brother who is ailing. After returning from India, a lot of things changed personally,” Mulee said during his morning show.
“I had plans for the team but I thought I would be doing the country a disservice if I remained to be the head coach yet I have personal issues affecting me.” He added.
The tactician, 53, also hinted that he wanted to quit much sooner but with World Cup qualifiers in the midst, he decided to see out the games against Uganda and Rwanda before calling it quits.
The Harambee Stars have two points from their opening two games after collecting draws in both games.
“After the draw against Rwanda and Uganda, I sat down with the FKF and we all saw it fit that I hand over to someone else,” he went on.
In May 2021, Mulee had been in India for the last three weeks and it was recently revealed he went to donate a kidney to his brother.
