Former Kenyan international James Situma has returned to class, barely three months after he retired from active football.
Situma hanged his boots early this year but the former Kenya Premier League defender will be spending his time in the classroom after enrolling for a Business Administration course at the Zetech University.
Situma, who is also the president of Kenya Footballers Welfare Association (KEFWA) is understood to have attended the mandatory orientation on Thursday, September 19.
Upon completion of the business course, Situma will afterwards undertake a course in Sports Management, according to the Thika Road-based institution.
“(This is) an area he believes is relevant to his line of work to empower him to expertly handle the affairs of the Association,” the institution said in a social media post.
