Rwanda National Volleyball team will face Kenya today at the Amahoro Indoor Stadium in a must win match that will determine which team will represent Zone V at this year’s All Africa Games in Congo Brazzaville.

Both teams remain unbeaten having thrashed Burundi and Uganda in their first two games and will be seeking the region’s only spot at the continental showpiece.

Rwanda yesterday easily strolled over Burundi after a 3-0 (25-14, 25-20 and 25-18) win, while Kenya beat Uganda 3-0.

“We believe that we have corrected our mistakes which we made in the first match. We know that it will be a tough game but we will give our best to win,” Rwanda’s head coach Paul Bitok said.

However, Kenya head coach Geoffrey Omondi has warned that his sided will not take anything for granted. “We will not be complacent because we won the first two games easily and we want to revenge because Rwanda has beaten us twice in the past, we shall be at our best,” a confident Omondi said.
