Former Kenya international takes charge of Wazee Premier League with a new leadership team elected to steer the league's future.

Former Kenya international Boniface Ambani has assumed the role of Chairman for the Wazee Premier League.

The highly-anticipated elective congress held on Saturday saw the election of key figures to lead this vibrant league into the future.

Joining Ambani in the league's new leadership lineup is Herbert Kunga, who was elected as Vice-Chairman.

This duo, along with their dedicated team, is poised to steer the Wazee Premier League to greater heights.

Herbert Kunga, a former professional footballer renowned for his contributions to Football Kenya Federation Premier League (FKF-PL) sides such as Nairobi City Stars FC and Ligi Ndogo SC, brings a wealth of experience to his new role as Vice-Chairman.

Kunga's deep-rooted passion for the game and his extensive knowledge of the football landscape make him an ideal candidate to support Chairman Ambani in shaping the league's future.

Joseph Nyachwaya has been voted as the Secretary General, while Job Kich has assumed the crucial position of Treasurer.

Lenny Kigen was also chosen as the Organizing Secretary, ensuring that the league's operations run smoothly and efficiently.

The National Executive Members, representing various regions, are poised to contribute significantly to the league's development.

William Kadenge will represent the Coast Region, Fredrick Bwanga will advocate for the Central Region, and Eric Amwoma will oversee the Western Region.

This diverse group of leaders promises to bring a variety of perspectives and ideas to the table, fostering a sense of unity and collaboration within the league.

Chairman Ambani, a football legend in his own right, made history as the top scorer of the FKF Premier League in 2006 with an impressive tally of 20 goals while playing for Tusker FC.

His remarkable journey also took him to the prestigious Indian club East Bengal Club in the early 2006 season.

Ambani's last season as a player was with Tanzanian club Young Africans, where he displayed his scoring prowess with 18 goals in just 22 matches.

After retiring due to an Achilles tendon injury in 2010, Ambani transitioned seamlessly into football administration.

The Wazee Premier League, designed for retired footballers' clubs from Kenya and beyond, is built on the foundation of organized football activities that promote camaraderie and sportsmanship among its members.
