The hosts defeated Seychelles 3-0 (25-13, 25-20, 25-11) to bring their win-loss ratio in the tournament to 4-0.

The result brought Tunisia’s win-loss record in the six-nation tournament to 4-0 while Uganda dropped to 2-2.

Tunisian players like Barhouumi Marwa, Agreb Ramah Maissa Lengliz had little difficultly in hitting a disjointed Ugandan side especially in the second set where they faced no opposition.

Senegal achieved their second victory of the tournament following a 3-0 (25-13, 25-14, 25-14) victory against Mozambique in the second match of the day.

Senegal achieved their second victory of the tournament following a 3-0 (25-13, 25-14, 25-14) victory against Mozambique in the second match of the day.

The results brought Senegal’s win-loss record in the tournament to 2-2 while Mozambique dropped to 0-4.

Now Kenya and Tunisia will fight for the World Championship ticket, when they meet each other on the fifth and last day of the competition.  The winner will book their ticket to the FIVB Volleyball Women's World Championship Italy 2014.
