UoN Journalism students battle for top spots in sports


The University of Nairobi broadcast production football team beat their mass communication counterparts in this year’s inter-department sports competition.



The broadcast production students, who take their classes at the Kenya Institute of Mass Communication (KIMC), trounced their main opponents by 3 goals to nil in the final match to clinch the cup.


“I think these guys were well prepared than most of us”, said Jack, the goal keeper of the mass communication students team.


The event which took place at the main campus grounds required journalism students from all years of study to compete against each other in football, basketball and volleyball matches.

The basketball match was won by the second-year students by 28 points against third-years’ 12 points.


The first-years won the volleyball cup after edging the forth-years out of the competition in the finals by 3 sets to nil.


Rose Kiriinya, one of the members of the second-year volleyball team expressed her joy.


“It is an awesome feeling to win this competition, especially because we were more organized than our opponents”, said Rose.

Lilian Mugo, the captain of the third-year volleyball team, blamed lack of adequate training for their loss. “Although we had not fully trained for this game, we managed to put up a strong fight, but we lost,” she said.


These sentiments were echoed by Joseph ‘nans” Nanjira, one of the football players in the competitions.


“The games were announced only last week”, he said. “There was absolutely no time for training”, he added.


However, the organizers of the event brushed off these claims and insisted that the time given for preparations was enough.

“Two weeks is more than enough to adequately prepare for the competition”, said Cedric Opany, the chairman of Nairobi University Journalism Students Association.


The event registered a low turn out of students who were needed to cheer on their respective representatives from their classes.
