Volleyball queen Jane Wacu dumps Prisons for Pipeline

Volleyball star Jane Wacu says the lure of joining a winning team, plus an opportunity of securing permanent employment in the private sector, forced her to abandon the Kenya Prisons side following 10 years of service.

The 30 year-old has confirmed to Nairobi News she will be joining Kenya Pipeline, the reigning back-to-back Kenya Volleyball Federation league champions.

“My wish is to continue playing at the highest level and presently, Pipeline have the best team in the country by a mile. They have also promised me a permanent job and I want to help the team win the continental championship.” Wacu said.

Wacu’s first assignment in Pipeline’s colours will be at the Africa Club Championship in Tunisia next month, a tournament Pipeline are seeking to triumph after 12 years in the cold.

The player has however not yet been registered to compete in the Kenya Volleyball Federation league, which kicks off in Nyeri County on Friday.

At the same time, Nairobi News understands Wacu has opted out of the Prisons squad following a continued lack of interest in sports by the Prisons department.
