KeMU Mercurial Striker Joins Harambee Stars

From home of the finest footballers, he is a true symbol of football.  He is one of the finest strikers to have played for the team and a true legend of the game of this legendary team. You are talking about a player with sublime skill that represents an era.  A player who has been consistently victorious and repeatedly triumphant and played for the team with his body, mind and soul. The team is of course KeMU and the player is none other than Morven Otinya a Diploma student in the University.

Otinya has been called to the National soccer team Harambee stars camp to represent the country in two upcoming friendly matches against Mozambique and Liberia on 12th and 15th November. Last year Otinya helped KeMU finish in a respectable position 5 in the FKF Super league and to reach the KUSA finals in JOOUST, Bondo in December. The exceptional striker has ability, agility, strength and spirit. He is undeniably a giant in the game and it’s hard to find a quality he doesn’t possess.KeMU has 8 players in the women national team the starlets that is preparing for the Africa Women Cup of Nations (AWCON) in Cameroon in November this year.

They are sensational striker Essey Akida, Cherise Avilia, Ernez Mango, Neddy Atieno, Sharon Bushenei, Maurine Ater, Lilian Adera and goalkeeper Samanther Akinyi.

KeMU soccer team is preparing for the East Africa University Games to be held in JKUAT in December 2016. Last year both KeMU soccer teams for Men and Women reached the finals of the KUSA National Championship in JOOUST, Bondo in December and cemented the name of the University in the history of KUSA National Championship in football. This caused a fever pitch at JOOUST the theatre of the action. After that stellar performance I looked up in the sky and thanked the good Lord for the historic feat.

We thank the University Management and the Dean of Students Mr. Jeff Kubai for the support.
