Media personality Jacob ‘Ghost’ Mulee has broken his silence for the first time since hi Harambee Stars exit on Wednesday, September 15.
The media personality was on Wednesday sacked alongside his assistant Twahir Muhiddin and goalkeeping coach Haggai Azande in a move that caught many unawares.
Mulee has, however, issued a statement on the same saying he has had a hard time securing a termination of his contract.
He added that a lot of things changed since he jetted back to the country from India where he was attending to his ailing brother.
“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,” said Mulee.
Mulee added that he had personal issues focing him to bow out as the team’s head coach.
“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 said.
The coach 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.
“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.
