Malkia Strikers star players escape accident unhurt

Two national volleyball team players escaped unhurt following a road accident in Nairobi on Wednesday morning.

The Malkia Strikers duo Jane Wacu and Brackides Agala were headed for training with their club Kenya Prisons at the time of the incident.

“We thank God for our lives” Agala posted on her official Facebook page, alongside a picture of a damaged Mercedes Benz.

She later added; “Thanks people, we are okay. Maumivu tu kidogo (just a little pain).”

From the picture, the vehicle the two players were travelling in appears to have either been hit from the side by another vehicle, or rammed behind a stationery vehicle, or one that was moving at a slow speed.

Wacu and Agala, who until recently were playing for French club Chamalieres, are preparing to feature in the seventh leg of the Kenya Volleyball Federation league matches in Kwale County this weekend.

Prisons are hoping to dethrone two-time defending champions Kenya Pipeline for the national title ahead of the play-offs set for November.
