"Bobby is only with us for the match against Sony Sugar after which he will be taking up his new role as the head coach of the Hramabee Stars," said the Kenyan club's secretary general Chris Omondi.

Williamson joined the club midway through last season and helped them clinch their 13th Premier League title.
