After playing second fiddle to South Africa for the last four years, Kenya took advantage of their absence to finally claim the Africa Women’s 7s title after defeating Uganda 29-7 in the final played at the National Stadium in Gaberone, Botswana on Sunday, May 27.

The Ugandans were in sixes and sevens in the opening seven minutes as Kevin Mwema Wambua’s side opened a 22-0 lead by halftime that to a couple of tries from both Michele Omondi and Janet Akello.

After the break, Uganda started their chase back into the game and Grace Auma’s try that was converted by Charlotte Mudoola restored some hope.

However, the Lionesses finished buried the game with just second on the clock.
