They continued their clean sweep by beating host Congo Brazzaville 3-2 (24-26, 25-11, 25-20, 18-25,15-8) to finish at the top of the standings 3-0 and with 8 points.

Congo Brazzaville joined Cameroon in the final qualification phase after they finished in second position with a win-loss ratio of 2-1 (7 points). Gabon came third with 1-2 (2 points) to secure their qualification ticket. Chad ended the tournament in the fourth position (0-3 with 1 point).

In the men's Africa qualification process, the top two teams from zone 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 will join the zone 1 and 7 champions in the final qualification phase. The 12 teams will be joined also by the top three African teams in the FIVB Ranking, making a total of 15 teams to be divided into three final pools. The champions of each pool will secure their tickets to the finals of the 2014 FIVB Men's World Championship in Poland.
