National Women’s Volleyball team Malkia Strikers will open their Zone five Africa Games qualifiers this Sunday afternoon against Rwanda at the Lugogo Indoor Arena in Kampala, Uganda.
The team coached by Italian coach Shaileen Ramdoo will then face Ethiopia in their next match on Monday, before playing Uganda in their last fixture of the regional tournament.
Their long-time rivals Egypt however pulled out of the competition at the last time due to unspecified reasons.
Kenya will be competing for the single ticket that will guarantee them qualification to the continental championship.
There is however a provision for the competition’s runners up to go through to the African Games as a best loser depending on the results from the other four zones.
Three best losers will go through.
