Kenya’s flag-bearers in the CAF Confederation Cup Bandari FC beat Tunisia’s Ben Guardane 2-0 at the Kasarani Stadium.
After a barren first half, Yema Mwana put the Dockers in the lead before Abdallah Hassan doubled the lead six minutes.
The win is a healthy one and puts Bandari in pole position to progress to the playoffs round of the second tier continental championship.
Bandari will travel to Tunisia for the second round in a fortnight’s time.
Meanwhile, Kenya’s other representative in continental football Gor Mahia have arrived in Blida, Algeria ahead of their Champions League match against USM Algier on Sunday.
The trip was doubtful but a last minute lobbying saw the government chip in to provide them with 18 return air tickets after previously declining.
