Veteran tactician Henry Omino dies

The Football Fraternity is mourning the death of veteran coach Henry Omino who died on Friday 20 March in Ng’iya, Siaya County.

Omino succumbed to Thyroid cancer at the age of 71. Despite his illness, the tactician had remained active in football with his latest employers being Kisumu Allstars. He led Kisumu Allstars till January 6, 2020, when relieved off his duties after a series of poor performance with the side.

His death was confirmed by Football Kenya Federation and his immediate former employers Kisumu All-stars.

Omino has been a crucial figure in the development of football talents in Kenya. Washington Muhanji, Allan Wanga’s father Frank Wetende, Gor Mahia’s Kenneth Muguna and Bernard Ondiek are some of the football stars that were under his tutelage.

The coach began his career in the 1970s where he led Kisumu Posta. He later moved to Kisumu Telecom where he helped the side earn a place in the top tier while serving as a player and coach.

The tactician also coached at Re-union and Scarlet before moving to the likes of Agro Chemicals and Western Stima. He had an impressive stint at Western Stima but struggles in the 2017 season saw the side relegated.

At that period he had been appointed the technical director while Richard Makumbi had been hired as head coach.
