Kenya Pipeline duo of Gaudencia Makokha and Naomi Too progressed to the global show-piece after bagging bronze medal at the recently concluded African Nation Cup-cum-World Championships qualifiers in Mozambique.

“Despite training for a few days, they showed the continent what Kenyan volleyball is made of,” said Juma.
