Egypt vs. South Africa
Nirmeen Seifelnasr and Salma El Mohandes led Egypt to a third victory over South Africa beating them 3-0 (25-16, 25-7, 25-14) in a match lasting 59 minutes. The Egyptian attacker Yassmin Hussein was the top scorer with 15 points while Daniel Brittany led the South African scorers with 5 points. Despite resilience from South Africa, the host side managed to utilize their middle blockers creating a number of issues in attack for the visitors.

Kenya vs. Rwanda
The Kenyan spiker Violet Makuto and teammate Egaly Kulove led their team to a 3-1 (25-22, 23-25, 25-18, 25-19) victory in a thrilling match. The Rwandans, coached by Kenyan Paul Bitok, put up a brave fight and managed to draw even at 1-1 after a fantastic performance from their star Feza Izabayo. However Kenya eventually gained momentum to win the third and fourth sets.

Tunisia vs. RD Congo
Tunisia were also victorious on Sunday beating DR Congo in straight sets (25-9, 25-12, 25-19) after a consistent performance from Rahma Sinoussi who topped the scores with 18 points. The Tunisian team showed signs of improvement after a shaky start to the tournament.
