EAC Games: Hon Kisembe shines as Kenya spanks Uganda, Tanzania at Inter-Parliamentary Games
Kenya’s Parliament delivered an impressive performance on the final day of the East Africa Community Inter-Parliamentary Games, winning all of the matches in which they competed on Wednesday.
The Kenya legislatures had a busy final day with three fixtures – football and volleyball (men); and basketball women on the card.
In football, Kenya condemned Burundian to a 3-0 defeat.
Former investigative journalist cum lawmaker – Mohamed Ali broke the ice for Kenya after just 20 minutes of play.
Ali took advantage of a school-boy mistake by the Burundian goalkeeper following a defensive mix-up to slot home from close range.
Hon Alfred Kisembe doubled Kenya’s lead minutes before the breather as Burundi crumbled under pressure from a well-oiled Kenyan side.
Kisembe finished off his brace after the break with a sublime finish, a goal that won him game-player of the match.
Elsewhere, Team Kenya defeated Rwanda 3-0 in men’s volleyball on the Nimra Talata Court.
Their victory propelled them to the top of the standings ahead of the final match against Uganda – a decisive game that will determine the regional winner.
