The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has entered ten teams in the East and Central Africa Handball tournament planned for August 25-31 in Mwanza. The Secretary General of Tanzania Handball Association (THA), Sudi Omary, said yesterday that the hosts will field seven teams in the competition.
Other countries which have confirmed to take part are Kenya (six), Congo Brazzaville, Uganda (two each) and Zanzibar (four). Omary said the deadline to confirm participation expired yesterday and that no new applications would be entertained. He has appealed to Mwanza residents to show up in big numbers to cheer the home teams.
