Kenya was set to play neighbours Tanzania in their last Pool D match of the 2021 Men’s African Nations Championship in Kigali, Rwanda on Friday.
However, Tanzania forfeited the fixture with CAVB, Volleyball’s continental body, awarding Kenya’s Mfalme Spikers a 3-0 win.
According to unofficial report, Tanzania were barred from playing the game for failing to pay participation fee.
