Southern Africa: CECAFA-Kagame Cup - Simba, As Ports Enjoy Perfect Starts

Tanzania champions, Simba enjoyed a perfect start to the regional competition, beating Dakadaha of Somalia 4-0 in their Group C match on Saturday in Dar es Salaam.

Newly signed striker, Adam Salamba scored a brace, finding the back of the net in either half minute before goals from Marcel Kaheza and Rashid Juma completed the rout.

In Group B, Djibouti representatives, AS Ports surprised Lydia Ludic from Burundi with a 2-1 win in Chamazi.
