Goal.com reports that Okumbi, who was relegated to the Kenya U20 team this month, has been handed a three-year deal by Zesco.

Zesco CEO Richard Mulenga said Okumbi is not their preferred candidate to take over from Tenant Chembo who has been in interim charge since Zlatko Krmpotic was suspended last October.
