Kenya's Police Defends Nyerere Cup Champions Title

Reading Time: 2 minutes

For the fourth time in a row, Kenya's Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI)women's volleyball team successfully defended its Nyerere Cup Champions title in the annual tournament held in Arusha, Tanzania, last week.

This was after a spectacular showdown against the towering Administration Police of Rwanda (APR) team in the Friday 14 finals, where the DCI Queens whitewashed their opponents in three sets of 26-24, 25-19, and 25-15, respectively.

"In the breathtaking encounter, the to-be most valuable player (MVP) award winner Marion Indeche slammed hefty spikes on the opponents' court, giving them no chance for a comeback. Each prolific set by the zestful team captain Jane Mumbua guaranteed a plus on the scoreboard, earning her the Best Setter award," said DCI in a statement.

Other awards in favour of the DCI team went to Mercy Iminza, who was crowned the Best Blocker, Peninah Nafula - Best Libero, and Daniel Bor, who emerged as the Best Coach in the tournament.

Best Server and Best Receiver awards went to APR's Valentine Munezero and Seraphine M, respectively.

In the preliminary stages, the DCI Queens, who are also the youngest players in the Kenya National Women's Volleyball League, faced other giant teams across Eastern Africa, including Kenya's Young Spikers, Tanzania's Jeshi team, Star Girls, Chui, and the dreaded Magereza Stars with whom they battled in the semis.

In the men's category, the General Service Unit (GSU) team beat the Rwandan APRs by lashing them three sets to one in the finals, thus retaining their title.

"With great admiration, we congratulate the two Kenyan teams for a job well done in bringing glory to our country and wish them greater wins in the future," added DCI.
