KeMU F.C Disarms Administration Police

KeMU F.c beat Administration police 1-0 in a tough National division one league match at the ASK Showground in Meru. The match between the scholars and the law enforcers gave the many fans that turned up an afternoon of soccer extravaganza. AP is a strong team with a lot of experience and has been in the Kenya Premier League twice. This year they reached the quarter finals of the GOTV shield cup only to be eliminated by Gor Mahia f.c. KeMU gave a spirited fight and was tactically and technically superior to their opponents who opted for long balls and fast breaks.

The KeMU soccer team is ranked second nationally in University games after losing to Kenyatta University narrowly on post-match penalties in the KUSA finals played in JOOUST last December. The next league match will be against Vegro in Naivasha.  We appreciate the priceless support from the University Senior Management.
