Ulinzi crowned EA military champs

Ulinzi Stars,Kenya Premier League former champions have reclaimed the East Africa Military games title after the last match, which saw hosts Rwanda, represented by APR, beat Tanzania’s Simba SC 1-0.


This was a sweet victory after anxious moments at the helm, as a win for Simba would have seen them leapfrog Ulinzi at the top of the standings.

The Kenyans had moved to the top of the standings earlier in the competition after their convincing 2-0 victory over the Tanzanians, but they had to wait for the final outcome from the other match to confirm the title.

Ulinzi reclaims the title a year after losing it painfully to the Rwandans, and prior to taking it back they had exuded confidence that they would successfully do so.

The Nakuru based Kenyan Military side started the tournament on the right note after beating APR of Rwanda 1-0 in the opener, a result that seemed to motivate the team.

The task is now to win their pending two Kenyan Premier League matches, which had been postponed to allow them to participate in the regional tournament in Rwanda and abide by their motto, ‘soldiers first’.
