The Chief of Defence Bora Cup Championship kicked off officially at the Ulinzi Sports Complex – Lang’ata, Nairobi, on Monday.
The five-day championship, which aims to promote friendship and physical fitness, brings together service personnel from different Defence Brigades, Formations and Bases to enhance cohesion and promote esprit-de-corps within the services.
Colonel Lawrence Ntoyai, the Defence Forces Netball Association (DFNA) chairman, presided over the opening ceremony.
In his opening remarks, Colonel Ntoyai stressed the idea of engaging in friendly matches and emphasized maintaining high standards of discipline among the players.
He further echoed how the championship will serve as an arena for players to display their prowess, where the best players will be selected to boost the current Ulinzi team and get an opportunity to represent the country in the ongoing national league and tournaments sponsored by the Ministry of Defence.
CDF Bora Cup challenge returns after suspension due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The next championship is slotted to take place later in April at the same venue.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
