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.

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.

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.
