The Kenya Basketball Federation Secretary General Ambrose Kisoi believes the country can develop to become one of the continent’s basketball powerhouses if proper systems are laid.

Kenya’s qualification to the Afrobasket Finals after a 28-year hiatus was met with sheer excitement in the country and Kisoi said he believes Morans have the potential to feature regularly at international events.

“We have learnt that we have a lot of talents in this country and we need to have a well-coordinated way of bringing these talents together. Given good preparations and facilitation the team can perform much better,” Kisoi said.

The team arrived on Wednesday morning and were hosted to a luncheon at a Nairobi hotel organized by the national team management board in conjunction with the Ministry of Sports.

Kisoi added that the meeting was to congratulate the boys for the well job done and make preparations for the next level where CS Amina Mohamed promised the full support of the Government.

“The cabinet secretary has committed that the government will support the pre-training camp in terms of allowances and venue. The ministry will also make sure the team is also facilitated to attend the Afrobasket Championship,” he added.

The Afrobasket Championship will be held in Kigali, Rwanda from August 25th to September 5th.

Ranked 115th globally, Morans last featured at the biennial event in 1993 by virtue of playing hosts to the games and they finished fourth.
