The preparation for the second window of the FIBA Afrobasket qualifiers are underway in Nairobi, Kenya, where the Kenyan National Basketball team is working behind closed doors preparing and sharpening their spears. The qualifying tournament will take place in Yaounde, Cameroon, on the 19th to the 21st of February. Kenya will face Senegal, Angola, and Mozambique for the second time in search of the elusive chance to participate in the FIBA Afrobasket games which will take place later this year in August at Kigali, Rwanda.

Morans’ center, Tom Bush Wamukota, who missed the first round in Rwanda has reported to camp and is optimistic about Kenya’s chances of qualifying. In an interview with Th3Doctor’s Report Wamukota said;

“We have the best chance of qualifying, we have a full house, the training is looking good and Kenyans should be ready to witness this historical fete.”

Other Players in Camp are:
Valentine Nyakinda, Desmond Blacio, Griffin Ligare, Fidel Okoth, Ariel Okall, Faheem Juma, and Victor Ochieng. The rest of the squad who will join the team early in February are Tylor Okari Ongwae, Preston Bungei, Joel Awich and Ronnie Gundo.
