Mulinge's plan to steer KPA ship to summit of African volleyball

What you need to know:

  • Nation Sport writer Samuel Gacharira spent a week visiting Kenya’s representatives at their respective bases and in this week-long series, he gives interesting insights on the behind-the-scenes work coaches and players have put in ahead of the continental event

  • Despite the scanty preparations, the dockers have qualified for the league play-offs four times, only missing out once in 2015 when they were promoted
  • KPA will arrive in Tunis as underdogs given this will be their maiden appearance at the continental showpiece
