Striking beauty, dazzling skills, fancy hair styles and silky dancing moves is what Kenya’s national women volleyball team has been treating spectators to at the ongoing Africa Nations Championship in Yaounde, Cameroon.

Malkia Strikers, who are the reigning African champions, commenced their title defence in the best possible way on Saturday with a 3-0 (25-16, 25-8, 25-10) spanking of Nigeria.

But then, their dominance over their opponents on the court is just half of the story for the Kenyan girls.

On Sunday, the Kenyan beauties were captured by the official Africa Volleyball Confederation (CAVB) YouTube channel displaying their elegant dance move to sounds of Nigerian artiste Yemi Alade’s hit track Na Gode during a warmup session on court ahead of their match against Senegal.

It appears, from the video clip, that Kenya Prisons centre player Brackides Agala, in her distinctive long braids in Kenyan colours, is the team’s unofficial cheerleader when it comes to these matters.

This is however not the first time that Agala, a former long serving national team captain, has been caught on camera showcasing her suave dance moves on the court.
