Morans made history after heavyweight bouts of Angola 74-73, in a nail-biting tournament in Yaoundé, Cameroon so they secured a place in the African tournament for the first time since 1993.

“After my first FIBA ​​Region VI Club Championship in Africa in 2012, I said I wanted to be the 1st woman to lead the men’s team in the AfroBasket tournament. In August this dream will come true,” she wrote in her official Twitter account. .

Mills has had experience working in African basketball since more than a decade. He has worked as a mentor, but has also coached a variety of teams, including the Patriots on the Rwandan top flight, while also serving as an assistant coach for the national teams of Zambia and Cameroon.

It had been 27 years, since Kenya participated at the continental level. So perhaps, Mills is the doctor recommended for a national team that does not achieve success.

In the male-dominated arena, Australia has challenged every situation to set the best example when it was most important. He believes he will break the shock of nearly three decades and put Kenya on the table of the elite nations of African football.

“I think it was a way to look more professional but also to remind everyone that I’m a woman and I’m not afraid of that and I want you to know that,” Mills said in an interview with The Associated Press.

“I wanted to go in and be like, this is me, I’m here.”

The 55-year-old has not escaped encouraging his fellow women to take on leadership roles in society to strengthen their foundation and increase their numbers further in the “vulnerable” environment.

Kenya will fight for the honor of the continent with other African giants and Mills believes there is every reason for a girl to focus more: “Women can do anything and we should not set ourselves limitations. and our generation will continue to break barriers and young girls can dream of doing anything, “said Liz.

The technique was previously in Nairobi in 2015 when he was involved in coaching programs and also working with the university league but has generally been on the continent since 2011 after graduating with a degree in Sports Science and Sports Management in 2008
