The Women’s national Volleyball team of Cameroon overpowered Tunisia 3 sets to 0 to maintain their perfect start at the ongoing 2021 African Volleyball Championship in Kigali-Rwanda.

After recording a resounding 3 sets to 0 victory against familiar rivals and nine-time champions Kenya in their group B opener on Sunday, coach Jean Rene Akono’s girls did not fail to repeat the same exploit against their North African rivals 24 hours later.

Cameroon were impressive throughout the game against Tunisia. They made their intent clear when they won the first set 25-15, then continued with a 25-18 score and wrapped-up with an impressive 25-17 to claim their second win in a row.
