Team profile

Kenya Prisons was established five years ago and has quickly emerged as one of the best teams in Africa.

The team, which is based at Nairobi West within the Kenya capital city. has changed the landscape of the national league after decades of domination by the likes of Kenya Pipeline, Kenya Commercial Bank and the disbanded Posta.

Prisons team, which is made up of youthful and ambitious players, has successfully defended the Kenya Volleyball Federation Women’s League title for the last four years and lifted the continental championship on the last three occasions, all under coach David Lung’aho.

According to team manager David Kilundo, their main objective when forming the team was to become one of the best sides in Africa, a target which has been achieved.

Prisons pedigree is evident from the fact that most of its players are in the current national team, which is also handled by Lung’aho.

They include inspirational captain and middle blocker Bracksides Agala, attackers Mercy Moim, Diana Khisa, Everline Makuto, Lydia Maiyo, setter Jane Wacu. All were included in the team that claimed bronze at the recent Maputo All Africa Games.
