Cherise Avilia a student at KeMU pursuing a degree in Business Administration helped the Kenya national women team “Harambee Starlets” to create history by scoring a golden goal in an International match against Algeria at the Safaricom stadium Kasarani on 12th Tuesday 2016. The all-important goal enabled Kenya to qualify for the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) to be held in Cameroun in November this year. Kenya drew 1-1 with Algeria and qualified on the away goal rule since they had drawn 2-2 a few days ago in Algeria.
