Coach to the team, Mr Abraham Muchingami, a lecturer in the Department of Tourism commented the performance of MSUAS Pioneers as highly exceptional.
“We had a blast and the day was a fantastic experience considering that it was our first competitive outing as a team. I would like to say a huge thank you to the team for the co-operation and I give credit to everyone that has contributed to the brilliant initiative of the tournament,” sai
The University remains committed to outside classroom learning activities and highly regards sport as an integral health component in the psycho-social system of students and staff.
