In the division’s Nines competition, Ken Mwangi claimed the First Nine winner’s prize after scoring 32 points, while Lucy Gakinya’s 31 points were enough to earn her the top prize in the Second Nine.

At the same time, Kenya Tourism Board (KTB) Company Secretary Allan Njoroge was the Guest Winner after scoring 67 points on the day.
