Jacob 'Ghost' Mulee became the third coach to lose his job during the 2022 World Cup qualifiers in Africa after Kenya fired him late Wednesday.

The 53-year-old was named coach of the Harambee Stars for a fifth time last October following the surprise sacking of Francis Kimanzi.

Under his stewardship, Kenya registered two draws against Uganda and Rwanda during the World Cup qualifiers and have little hope of being among the 10 group winners after the sixth and final round of mini-league matches in November.

A statement from the Kenyan federation said the organisation and Mulee had "reached a decision to part ways by mutual consent, effective immediately".

Mulee's departure follows that of Zimbabwe coach Zdravko Logarusic on Sunday and Hossam El-Badry, who was axed as coach of Egypt last week.
