Kakamega Homeboyz head coach Nicholas Muyoti has been named as the best Kenyan Premier League coach in the month of January.
The former Harambee Stars beat off stiff competition from his counterpart from Gor Mahia Steven Polack who came second in the tallying.
It is Muyoti’s first accolade since the inception of the award with his team still in contention for the league title where they are currently placed third with 41 points; just four points below leaders Gor Mahia.
In the month of January, Homeboyz was comfortably at the top of the league log and stayed there for a total of 13 days before being dislodged by Tusker FC and then Gor Mahia.
January saw the Kakamega based side win all their four games after wins against Kisumu All-Stars, Zoo FC, Gor Mahia and Kariobangi Sharks.
They next host a rising Chemelil Sugar FC at their Bukhungu backyard in their next league game.
