Team profile

Kenya Prisons was established seven years ago and emerged as one of the strongest teams in Africa. The Kenyan club counts on a blend of youth and experience that is continuously changing the landscape of African volleyball after decades of domination by clubs Al Ahly (Egypt), Kenya Pipeline, Kenya Commercial Bank, and the now disbanded Kenya Posta.

Kenya Prisons successfully won the first division title of the Kenyan League on five occasions with coach David Lungaho manning the sidelines.

From 2008 to 2013, the club also established its hold by winning the continental title five times, four of which were won consecutively making them a regular Africa representative to the FIVB Women’s Club World Championship. Their most recent undertaking was in Madagascar where they outplayed their African neighbours at the annually held continental championship.

In their quest to seek their first match victory at the FIVB Women’s Club World Championship, coach Lungaho banks on his lineup. Lungaho’s team is composed of the best Kenyan players, mostly coming from the national team whose experience in international competitions helped the club achieve its dominating status in the national and continental leagues.


Coach profile

David Lungaho has been the head coach of the Kenya Prisons team for the last six years. He previously coached Kenya Pipeline and has been the Kenya national women's team coach for the last eight years. He started volleyball as a player with the Kenya Commercial Bank for whom he played until 2003.

He remains one of the most successful coaches in Africa having won seven continental titles – two with Kenya Pipeline and five with Kenya Prisons. He also won the Africa Cup of Nations title with the national team in 2005, 2007 and 2011.

He coached the national team at the 2004 Athens Olympic Games as well as at the 2007 World Cup and the 2006 and 2010 World Championships, and was assistant coach of the national women’s team that participated in the 2011 FIVB World Cup in Japan.

He joined Prisons as a civilian, but following mandatory training he has risen to the rank of chief officer or inspector. Lung’aho is a father of three boys and married to Kenya Prisons' player Salome Wanjala. Popularly known as Demosh among his peers, Lung’aho hopes that one day a Kenyan team will be on top of the world.
