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.
