Kibabii University will become the centre for the lacrosse sport in Kenya. On Thursday 17th March 2022, a delegation led by the Secretary of the Kenya Lacrosse Federation Dr. Antony Akoto donated equipment to jumpstart the roadmap towards full establishment of the sport in the University.
“Kibabii University will be the first institution of higher learning in Kenya to partake the sport. We look forward to supporting and nurturing it to full realization,” Dr. Akoto said.
Kenya has been recognised as the 54th lacrosse nation by the Federation of International Lacrosse and has received awards for the development of the game on the African continent.
While acknowledging the donation, the Dean of Students Dr. Alice Mutai assured of Kibabii University’s readiness to embrace this new engagement.
“We are proud for this recognition and support. We promise to cooperate and ensure we develop talent and capacity for the new sport,” she said.
Dr. Akoto was accompanied by the Federation’s Vice President Mr. Fredrick Osore, and the Vice Treasurer Mr. Derrick Sagini.
