These players usually play for their various KDF teams which merged to form the now famous Ulinzi Stars that draws its ensemble of players from The Navy, The Army and The Air Force.
These players have represented Kenya at the International stage where they managed to do quite well for themselves and the team.
Some of these players have transitioned to other fields in the Kenya Defense Forces after quitting the game but some are now coaches.
Here are the four former Harambee Stars Players in the Kenya Defense Forces who have transitioned into coaching:
Warrant Officer II Danstan Nyaudo

He is of the rank of Warrant Officer 2 and has eased into coaching easily given his record with the team.
