Isiolo Starlets and Tumaini School from Makueni are the new Chapa Dimba Na Safaricom Eastern Region champions.

In the girls’ final, Isiolo saw off Chuka University while Tumaini beat Black Panthers from Meru Central in the boys’ final held at Kenyatta Stadium, Machakos.

Chuka’s, Susan Wanjeri scored in the 3rd minute to put the students ahead but Rebeka Nkirote equalized in the 33rd minute.

“We came to the finals prepared to win. We observed how our opponents played yesterday and capitalized on their weaknesses which earned us a win,” Hussein Wako, coach Isiolo Starlets.

“I am happy we have won because it was a tough match. After we conceded early we had to keep up the fighting spirit that we learned from the mentorship program we received earlier from our mentors. It is an honor representing the Eastern region at the Nationals and we promise to do our best,” said Kula Dida, Captain Isiolo Starlets.

Tumaini School emerged victorious in the boy’s finals after beating Black Panthers 4-1.
