Kakamega High School is known to be a bedrock of talents in the country.


With many players tracing their roots to the school, the 2014 team that beat Kisumu Day by a solitary goal in a packed Bukhungu Stadium remains one of their best assembled team.

Vitalis Akumu (Western Stima)

The player’s future remains unknown following the mass exodus being witness at Stima.
