KEN W: Munala drops two main stars – “It was part of a natural generational change”

by WoV

The head coach of Kenyan volleyball women’s team Japheth Munala has made huge changes for the Olympic qualifiers.



He announced the list of players, but there are no names of two main stars – captain Brackcides Agala and her deputy, setter Janet Wanja.

The first question that comes to our mind is why did he remove two players who led Kenyan team to the ninth African title this year? They also helped the side to gain promotion from Group 3 of the FIVB World Grand Prix to Group 2 as champions.

Coach Munala said he had opted to select some players who have impressed recently and that the move was part of a natural generational change.

This is Kenya’s squad for for Olympic Qualifiers:

Setters: Veronicah Tanui, Joy Lusenka, Jane Wacu, Esther Simiyu

Receivers: Gaudencia Makokha, Violet Makuto, Esther Wagechi, Loice Tarus, Lydia Maiyo, Noel Murambi, Monica Biama, Mercy Moim, Everlyn Makuto, Noami Too

Middle Players: Trizah Atuka, Ruth  Chelagat, Leoninda Kasaya, Edith Wisa, Ann Lowem, Shyrine Jepkemboi, Edna Muombe, Joan Chelagat, Valentine Koech

Liberos: Agriphina Kundu, Elizabeth Wanyama, Eva Mbone
