TOP TEAM NATIONAL FINALS
The Scania Top Team East Africa National final took place on 4th September 2017 in Nairobi Kenya, where three of the best service teams from Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda went head to head for the opportunity to represent East Africa in the regional finals to be held in 2018. The teams each had symbolic team names emulating what their country is known for. We had Team-Serengeti from Dar es Salaam Tanzania, whose team name represented the vast wilderness area that is home to millions of wildlife. Team-Cranes from Kampala Uganda choose their team name to represent the grey crowned crane on their national flag while Team-Simba from Nairobi Kenya chose their team name to signify power, protection and pride.
This was Kenya’s and Uganda’s first time participating in the competition whereas Tanzania had experience taking part in the competition, however that did not rattle the teams from Uganda and Kenya. After an exciting and gruelling day, Team-Simba from Kenya emerged the winners, with Team-Serengeti from Tanzania coming in second place and Team-Cranes from Uganda in third place. We wish Team-Simba all the best as they prepare for the regional finals’.
