Starlets Arrive In Tanzania For Cecafa Women’s Championship After Olympics Disappointment (Photos)


Kenya women’s national, the Harambee Starlets, arrived in Dar, Tanzania on Wednesday ahead of the CECAFA Women Championships starting this weekend.

The team left the country earlier this morning and will play their opener against Ethiopia on Sunday.

Despite bidding the 2020 Tokyo Olympics qualifiers goodbye after being knocked out by Zambia on Monday, the head coach, David Ouma, appreciated the team for their efforts.

“We didn’t get the results we anticipated in the Olympics Qualifiers but nonetheless, the girls gave a good account of themselves and I must say I am proud of them,” said Coach David Ouma.

He added: “There are a lot of positives to be picked and it’s now time to apply the lessons learnt.”

Kenya has been pooled in group B alongside Uganda, Ethiopia, and Djibouti. Group A comprises of Tanzania, Burundi, Zanzibar, and South Sudan.

The top two teams from each group will proceed to the semifinals.
