Being the team’s first match in the tournament, Kenyan MPs who filled the volleyball court expressed absolute confidence in the team’s ability to win all its subsequent games, should they keep up the momentum.

Wanyama, a former Kenyan international was the star of the match as his serves were too much for the Ugandan MPs.

Meanwhile the netball team captained by nominated senator Betty Syengo did not also disappoint as they flew the Kenyan flag high.

They beat Rwanda 15-14 in front of their vocal fans on Monday night.

The Kenyan legislators had started the event on the right foot on Sunday when the football team thrashed the East African Legislative Assembly 5-0.
