The national men’s volleyball team Wafalme Stars have been eliminated from the African Nations Championships.
Kenya were banking on Morocco beating Egypt to qualify for the quarterfinals having temporarily moved to second place in the Group D standings with five points following their 3-0 walkover over Tanzania on Friday.
However, Egypt beat Morocco 3-1 (25-21, 22-25, 25-18, and 25-19) to finish top of Group "D" with seven points, one ahead of Morocco who settled second.
Egypt and Morocco therefore qualified for the quarters as Kenya narrowly missed out.
Kenya will now play Burkina Faso in a classification match on Saturday (today from 1pm East African Time.
