The triumphant Kenya women hockey team returned to Nairobi on Monday evening from Bulawayo Zimbabwe where they successfully defended their Africa hockey title.

 The Kenya team finished top after defeating host nation Zimbabwe 7-0 in the finals to retain the cup won last year in Kampala.

 On arrival the team dedicated their cup to their fallen team member Betty Tioni who passed away earlier this year. Tioni was part of the team that won the last edition of the tournament in Kampala earlier this year.

"We Dedicate our cup to our sleeping sister Betty Tioni. This is a great achievement for every member of our team and we thank God for the title.” Said team captain Betsy Omalla.

 Kenya’s Strathmore University finished 4th at the same competition after defeating Ghana Revenue Authority in the 3rd and 4th playoffs.
