The Kenya Prisons Men Volleyball team has achieved recognition after securing bronze in the men’s African Volleyball club championship. As a result, seven players from the team have been promoted to various ranks in the Kenya Prisons Police Department due to their outstanding performances in the championship.

Among those promoted is Peter Kibata, who was awarded the best libero in the 45th African Men’s Volleyball Championship in Cairo, Egypt. According to the Kenya Volleyball Federation, Kibata has been promoted to the rank of Sergeant.

Additionally, six other players, including Kelvin Kipkosgei, Charles Bosire, Jairus Kipkosgei, Emmanuel Kosgei, Sila Kipruto, and Ezekiel Yebei, have been promoted to the rank of Corporal at Kenya Prisons Service. Under the leadership of Coach Dennis Mokua, the team has achieved significant success, becoming the only Kenyan men’s team to reach the medal bracket twice, with their last appearance in 2011 resulting in a silver medal.
