EALA posts yet another victory….slams Burundi 7-1 in football as Kenya win in volleyball
East African Legislative Assembly, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania: 8th December 2017: The bar has been raised high! EALA once again proved too good for their opponents. Little credit goes this time around to the Parliament of Burundi who became the first team were able to find the net for a consolation goal, but not before their goalkeeper returned to retrieve the ball from the back of the net seven times!
Star striker, Ibrahim Jamal proved why he is currently the dime in the Parliamentary games, snatching a brace in the competition. The game started on slow pace with the Parliament of Burundi making early foray in EALA’s half. However, the striking duo of Hon Denis Karera and Simon Gakinja was ineffective in front of goal. EALA’s substitute, Emmanuel Diah took the place of midfield dynamo, Wyclif Ketto who was benched today with a slight injury.
Against the run of play, Ahmed Mwapambe beat the defence marshaled by Andre Ndinze, Hon Therance Manirambona and Hon Hon Beded Mbayahaga to draw first blood.’
EALA were up at it again even before Parliament of Burundi could settle. This time, Boniface Ogoti picked a loose ball in the midfield and fed Ibrahim Jamal who tapped past the advancing goalkeeper, Hon Ibrahim Uwizeye. Other goals were scored by Player/coach Khalfan Kingi, and Hon Julius Wandera Maganda.
In men’s volleyball, Kenya beat Uganda 3-0. In the first set, Kenya beat 25 against Uganda’s 11 before repeat 25-09 in the next set. In set three, the victors once again beat Uganda 28-26.
The script was the same in women’s volleyball Kenya similarly beat Uganda 3-0 in sets of (25-12), (25-22) and (25-16).
