The last 3 years were wonderful for the KBS: 
The club was on top of their group in the Nairobi Provincial Level from the beginning to the end of the 2014 league. We were promoted to the nationwide level for the 1st time of the history of the club and became the best team in all Kibera.

Then, we finished on top again in 2015 season.  We are now the only team in the history of all Kibera to play in Nationwide Div1.

In 2016 again, we are CHAMPIONS, we are CHAMPIONS!!! and will play in National Super League (second tier) next year.

= 3 promotions in 3 years. What a great achievement for a small community team in a slum!

- After some matches in Nationale League, our young players have already achieved a lot by leading the table: Well done guys!  In order to  do even better, they have to learn how to hold the result till the final blow or to score more goals during the game to be safer. They also need to improve the finishing because there are still so many chances missed. We must concede less silly goals as well, we need to be more careful to avoid losing easy points against average time in order to stay on top....

- The launching in Kenya of the documentary "Black Stars in Kibera" by Luis Nachbin was a great success in Alliance Française on Monday March 16. The MP of Kibera, Ken Okoth encouraged our members at this occasion.

- Despite our defeats against Premier league teams, 4-1 against Mathare Utd, 3-0 against the 2014 champions of Kenya, the giants Gor Mahia, then 2-0 against KCB, the moral of our boys is high. before the beginning of the 2015 league. They proved it by beating 4-1 the long established team in Nationwide, Savanah Cement, then 5-0 against Makarios boys (Provincial). We definitely have to work on our concentration  to avoid conceding too many goals from set pieces and improve our finishing... Keep it up guys!

- Our young players missed the final of the Nairobi Mini League organised at the end of October 2014 with just one goal conceded at the 94th minute. They were put down with their lack of experience. So sad but this a cruel law of football. Whatever, it can't make us forget the very greatseason we all spent together: bravo KBS!

- During this month of June 2014, some very interesting projects outside the football field were organised with our kids from Kibera: They were invited at one lively bazaar at the French school where they played some games, won some prizes, did some acrobatics, showed what  it is going on in Kibera and sold some arts items. They visited an orphanage where they offered some toys and clothes to some even less privileged, what a great action of solidarity from those kids! They launched a book that they made with some students of that same French school (a wonderful achievement!) and played a small football tournament. Yes those children are so talented!

- The coaches of Kibera attended a week of training courses in May 2014. They were all proud to receive their CAF level C coaching certificate. We are sure that all the advice will be visible on the different pitches of the area.


- Some students and some parents of the French school of Nairobi spent a very pleasant afternoon with the youth of Slum Soka and players / officials of KBS, on Isaac's pitch, deep inside the slum on Saturday 26th of April 2014. This first visit was a very warm event and allowed interesting exchanges. We are sure that some tight links will be gradually strengthened between the  two different organisations and will lead to some very nice initiatives of development towards the community of Kianda...

- The U11 and U13 of the Slum Soka club visited  the same age students at the French school to play 2 friendly indoor matches and showed their talent to all the people present and in front of the Brazilian TV. What a very nice event! Our boys were so excited on this Sunday 13 April 2014.

- The league started on Saturday 15th March: Our Boys won 2-1 away at the Dandora stadium against strong Dandora All stars in front of the officials of the Federation (who chose our club to be part of the launching ceremony, what a great honour!) and so many excited fans. Nice start, let's keep it up!
