That good show has earned a call to the national team Harambee Starlets provisional squad ahead of Council for East and Central Africa Football Association (CECAFA) in the 26 squad in the tournament that will be played in Rwanda starting on May 11th to 22nd. The squad will hit the camp on April 25th.

Bundi, the lethal striker who was signed from Nyamira Starlets has netted ten times for her team, scoring five during the 15-0 thrashing of Baringo Starlets a fortnight ago.

Other notable players include Vihiga Queens attacker Teresa Engesha.

Starlets had a stellar outing in the 2016 edition in Uganda, narrowly going down 2-1 to Tanzania in the final.
