Kenya Prisons' past exposure to help make impact in Zurich

Kenya Prisons are consistent in their FIVB Women's Club World Championship participation, the club has been the African Confederation representative since 2010.

Lausanne, Switzerland, September 30, 2013 – In a short span of seven years, Kenya Prisons quickly emerged as one of the strongest teams in Africa and are now entering their fourth consecutive stint at the annual FIVB Women’s Club World Championship in Zurich, Switzerland from October 9 to 13, 2013.

The club has changed the landscape of African volleyball from its formation down to becoming one of the best sides in Africa after decades of domination from other volleyball clubs. This target has been achieved as Kenya Prisons’ consistent and impressive showing in their national league and the African Club Championship with coach Mutsami David Lungaho at the helm.

The Kenya Prisons’ pedigree as a great club is evident as their roster is reinforced by current national team players such as Brackcides Khadambi (Blaque), Mercy Moim, Diana Khisa , Everlyn Makuto, and Jane Wairimu (Wacu).

The Kenyan club being hailed as the African queens has a regal mission at the Women’s Club Championship – to record at least one match victory. Lungaho believes that having played in the last three Club Championships, his players have gained enough exposure to help them make an impact in Zurich.

Their relentless quest to conquer the world and their consistent development of talent underlines the seriousness in achieving this goal; and the seventh edition of the Club World Championship might just be the right time for it.
