Rwanda’s Police handball club (men) and Kenya’s Nairobi Water (women) were on Saturday crowned regional champions after winning titles of the 2019 East and Central Africa Handball Federation (ECAHF) tournament in Kigali.

It was a return of the favour for Police when it mattered the most following their narrow 38-37 defeat to APR in the preliminary round on Tuesday.
