Mugera attributed their recent success to the financial support received from the Tujiamini Initiative, stating that it has provided the team with the necessary resources to aim for higher leagues.

"The availability of resources has made managing the team much easier. With our focus now on the qualifiers, we are determined to nurture and position our players for higher leagues," Mugera remarked.
