Team profile

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


The team, which comprises players who are all employees of Kenya's Prisons, has changed the landscape of the national league after decades of domination by Kenya Pipeline, Kenya Commercial Bank and the disbanded Posta.


According to team manager David Kilundo, the 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 on the current national team. These include inspirational captain and middle blocker Bracksides Agala, attackers Mercy Moim, Diana Khisa, Everline Makuto and Lydia Maiyo, and setter Jane Wacu.


Kenya Prisons finished runners-up behind winners Kenya Pipeline in the 2011 Kenya Volleyball Federation National League. They avenged that loss five months later by beating Pipeline in the African Women’s Club Championships in Nairobi on May 9-20, 2012, to capture their fourth continental title and qualify for 2012 FIVB Club World Championships. Prisons have represented Africa in the Championships two times, finishing sixth (2009) and fifth (2011).


The Kenyans are now determined to win at least one match and play in the second round of the tournament between continental champions. In the national league, Prisons are still unbeaten.


Prisons have dominated African Championships and their participation in the FIVB Club World Championships has definitely given them good exposure and experience which they can turn into success in Doha on this occassion.
