Pin It

Kenya Prisons duo, setter Jane Wacu and her team mate Praxcides Agala survived a morning accident scare along Langata Road, Wednesday morning.

Wacu was heading to daily morning training at Prisons' base in Nairobi West when she rammed into another car, ripping off the left side of her newly acquired Kshs.2 million Benz. She was driving with her former captain Agala when the accident took place. Both play for Club Chamalieres in France

Three months ago, Wacu was reported to have allegedly assaulted a security guard in Ruiri after a night out with friends after the guard tried to stop her from leaving the premise with a beer bottle.

The case was reported to Ruiri Police station. Prisons are currently preparing for this Friday's national league to be held in Voi, Taita Taveta County.

Going nowhere?

Wacu and Agala, alongside Everlyn Makuto and Mercy Moim who plays in Finland may not be released by Prisons this year for professional trade.

Prisons are under pressure to reclaim back the national title from Kenya Pipeline and the ranks are understood to have given orders to keep all their top players ahead national playoffs to be staged in Mombasa between November 25-27.

Prisons, currently top of the women's standing with 15 points, last won the title in 2013.

Cameroon Topple Malkia as Africa's Best

Pin It

Record nine-time African Volleyball Championship winners, Kenya women's Volleyball team have surrendered the continental leadership to Cameroon according to the latest FIVB world rankings.

Cameroon, 19th globally, now occupy first spot in the continent after climbing nine places to stand on 45 points, 16 points better than Kenya who are ranked 24th in the world with 29 points.

Malkia Strikers who failed to replicate their 2015 performance at the World Grand Prix this year, dropped to second after missing the Olympic slot to the new continental leaders.

Rio comes to bite

Kenya's failure to qualify for the Rio Olympics during the qualifiers could have played a big part in the drop.

This is a clear sign that Kenya Volleyball Federation must rethink their strategy if they want to continue dominating the continent and possibly break to the world stage lest the emerging forces like Cameroon, Rwanda and Senegal overtake them. There is also the threat by the Arab nations like Tunisia and Morocco who are currently rebuilding.

Kenya boast of a record nine Africa Nations title but the form of the team is slowly sinking with the aging of most players.

Tunisia are third in Africa and just two places behind Kenya followed by Algeria, Egypt, Senegal, Botswana, Uganda, Nigeria and Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) who complete the top 10 continental places in the women's group.

Men improve

Meanwhile the men's team moved two places despite a relatively low season and now occupy fourth place in Africa and 50th in the world. They are behind Egypt, Tunisia and Algeria in the continental standings.

Brazil and China are top of the men's and women's world table respectively.
