Nairobi, Kenya, 16th April 2021. There will be no Prisons Kenya men’s Volleyball team at the 2021 African Club Championship that will serve of this Sunday in Tunis.

The Kenya power house made a last minute decision to withdraw the men’s team in preference of the ladies team that will also travel on Sunday for the Women’s Club Championship in Tunis.

“Our institution has always supported two teams always but this time we have the championships going on at the same time which is not the norm, and so it was agreed that only the ladies will be facilitated being the National champions ahead of the men’s team.” Said Coach David Lungaho

Prisons had set a podium finish as their target for this championship, but now they will have to wait longer for the opportunity.

“It was hard at first to accept the fact, the team had trained so well and believed in themselves, but they all agreed to fight another day, we will now embark on our normal training awaiting the resumption of our league.” Concluded Coach David Lungaho.

In the absence of Prisons Kenya, GSU and KPA will remain the flag bearers for Kenya in the 10 days event.
