Stanley Okumbi has managed to handle Harambee stars in 10 unbeaten run that has seen him gain confidence in his team. But despite this Okumbi is not a happy man all.

“It is a good run, but still I am not happy because there are games like in Uganda and Zambia which we would have won. We still need to work more especially ensuring that we keep clean sheets. The beauty is that we are scoring and if we can ensure we defend better, we are in for a good run, “Said Okumbi.
