Kenya Prisons men's volleyball team blocker Saul Wafula has been given a clean bill of health and cleared to train ahead of African club championship in Tunis, Tunisia and the 2017 Kenya Volleyball Federation national league.

Wafula who was out for the better part of last season due to poor eyesight rejoined the team on Tuesday at the Safaricom Arena, Kasarani, as they began indoor training.

He will train with the warders ahead of the 2017 Kenya Volleyball Federation national league which kicks off on March 3 and the Club Championship set for 10 days from March 17 to 27, 2017.

“The doctors have given me a clean bill of health and I'm thankful that I'm here now,” said the 2014 KVF best blocker.

“I began the journey with the squad which won the KVF title last season but I was not there when it all ended. But now that I'm here I hope to go all the way together with the team to retain the title. I was part of the squad which featured in 2015 Club championship and I hope to make a comeback this year after we missed last edition due to various reasons.”

Wafula will join forces with regular Hudson Chesoli, Rodgers Kipkurui, Emmanuel Koskei and Kenneth Mwendwa.

Prisons coach Gideon Chenje welcomed back the blocker saying he is expected to enrich the team. “Wafula is a good player and I'm happy he is fit and training with us. Most definitely he will add one or two things in the team. But as to whether we will participate in the Friday first leg of the KVF national league at Kamukunji grounds, Nyeri remains too be seen.
