Yes. Not that they are bad. We just not have enough facilities to host the games as they are so many. Nyayo alone cannot do it. Let’s not talk about Upper Hill.

Look for more sponsors. More sponsors equals more incentives for the player. This will in turn make the sport more competitive.

Not that good. The refereeing needs to be uniform across board. Some refs are good, some just don’t know where to place them.

Put up proper structures to tap talent at a younger age for instance, have a youth basketball league and promote the game at the grass root level.

      The KBF office should build more basketball facilities across the country. Officiating is quite okay except during play-offs when we experience some biaseness. However this guy Imbali must be given enough attention as he is very talented.
