Uganda won the Africa Men’s Sevens on home soil to book their ticket to Cape Town, where they will be joined by beaten finalists Zimbabwe and third-place play-off winners Kenya.
Defending champions Kenya made it through day one in Kampala undefeated, beating Zimbabwe along the way, as they looked in good shape to retain their title.
However, a surprise 12-7 loss against Madagascar in their final pool match set up a Cup semi-final against the hosts.
It was Uganda – who won the tournament the last time it was played in Kampala – who emerged victorious 22-12 to set up a final against Zimbabwe, who beat Zambia in the other semi-final.
With both teams assured of qualification for RWC Sevens 2022, Uganda proved too strong for Zimbabwe, winning the final 26-0 to secure their first Africa Men’s Sevens title since 2017. To beat Zim, Isaac Massa bagged a brace as Michael Wokorach and Ian Munyani scored at try each. The conversion came from France based Philip Wokorach.
Kenya made sure of their progress to a sixth successive RWC Sevens 2022 as they beat Zambia 19-12 in the third-place play-off. Amon Wamalwa bagged a brace while Augustine Lugonzo had the first try in the win against Zambia.
