The Morans achievements were made to look even better when compared to the Men’s football team Harambee Stars who could not even make it out of their group in the recently concluded Africa Cup Of Nation Tournament.
Malkia Strikers – Finals
Kenya Morans – Finals
Harambee Stars – Group Stages
Guess who had a budget of Ksh. 244m to prepare and still embarrassed themselves.
