Nairobi, Kenya, 17th May, 2019

 The 2019 All African Games Zone 5 qualifiers are scheduled to take place between 19th and 21st of May, 2019 at Lugogo indoor arena in Kampala, Uganda following the release of the fixtures for the zonal qualifier by CAVB. This comes as continental  powerhouse Egypt and Tanzania pulled out of the crucial qualifiers leaving 4 teams namely Kenya, Rwanda, Ethiopia and hosts Uganda,  to battle it out for the sole ticket to the 2019 All African Games that will be held in Morocco, later this year. The matches will be played on a round robin basis.

Kenya's Head Coach Japheth Munala promised to treat the qualifiers seriously insisting that there would be no room for complacency in their quest to bag the ticket.

Coach Munala said this as he released the 12 member squad to represent the country in Uganda.  Youthful middle blocker Gladys Ekaru and Experienced Libero Elizabeth Wanyama were the late inclusions into the team after CAVB reviewed its earlier directive to the teams to send 12 players.

Kasarani indoor arena, Nairobi Kenya - 4th June 2019

The 2019 All African Games Zone 5 qualifiers served off at the Kasarani indoor arena in Nairobi. The three day event set to end on Wednesday has four teams competing for one slot to the Morocco bound games. Volleyball fans were treated to a wonderful spectacle of high level volleyball as the competing teams fought hard for every score point that will inch them closer to the sole ticket. 

In the first match of the day, Africa's powerhouse Egypt fought off the challenge of fast rising East African nation Rwanda after edging them out 3-1(25-22, 25-18, 23-25, 25-16). The Pharaohs were in a class of their own as they capitalized on their opponents' mistakes to secure the first two sets while they made very few mistakes. The Coach Bitok led charges pulled a set back, winning it by 25-21, sending the match into the 4th set in which the North Africans won won comfortably 25-16. 

In the second match of the day, Hosts Kenya laboured to beat their regional rivals Uganda, 3-2(22-25, 25-21, 25-21, 25-27, 15-12). Kenya, under the tutelage of Coach Epoloto got off to a bad start by failing to contain the Europe based Ugandan professionals Daudi Okello(jersey 6) and Malinga Kathbert(jersey 12). The duo tormented the Kenyan blocks and defense systems as the Ugandans powered their way to bag the first set 25-21. 

Coach Epoloto retained the same starting line up that ended the 1st set comprising setter Melly, opposite player Chemos, Middle blockers Kipkorir and Kipkirui while the outside hitters were Matui and captain Jairus. The team, buoyed by the presence of cheering fans fought hard in the next two sets, winning both by the same margin 25-21, tilting the set advantage to the Kenyans. Opposite player Chemos was untouchable while captain Jairus' defense and reception was exceptional. Middle blockers Kipkorir and Kipkirui were in hand to block the attacks of the hard hitting Ugandans. 

The 4th set seemed to be going to the Kenyans as they led 22-19 at some point in the set before a number of costly mistakes allowed the Ugandans to crawl back and level the score at 24-24, 25-25 before the visiting Ugandans wrapped up the set 27-25 sending the match into a tie break. 

Kenya began the fifth set brightly as they opened up a 4 point gap, 8-4 before the Ugandans came back to reduce the gap by 2 points, trailing 13-11. A costly generic error by the Ugandan player awarded Kenya a point at 14-12 before Outside hitter Nicholas Matui sealed the match with a ferocious attack to bag the set 15-12. A collective team effort and spirit ensured that the Kenyans ran away with the victory. 

Kenya will next face Rwanda on Tuesday, 4th of June, 2019 at 1600 hours while Uganda will battle it out with Egypt at 1400 hours.
