The development was confirmed to Times Sport on Sunday by the local volleyball governing body's Secretary General Adalbert Mfashimana.

"Thankfully the tournament is in the region (East Africa), there is no way we should not participate. We have written to the Ministry of Sports, now waiting for feedback," he said.
