OBALABA BAPIKA OBUNYAMA; Tanzania Among First Countries to Be Eliminated from AFCON19

Kenya’s Harambee Stars have kept their hopes alive of progressing to the knock-out stage of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

This striped with a gutsy 3-2 win over familiar foes Tanzania that has become the first country to get eliminated from the ongoing tournament in Egypt’s capital Cairo.

As Bobi Wine’s slogan goes ‘Obalaba Bapika Obunyama, Naye Ngawork Wambwa’  a famous one that relates on the contradictions of appearances Vs reality.

Tanzania was baptized by the skinny neighbours, an action that forced them to demonstrate Diamond Platnum’s Tetema or Kanyaga dance moves on the pitch.

Harambee Stars came from behind twice before taking the lead for good late in the second half with a double strike from Michael Olunga.

The win gave Kenya three points and third place in the group and they will have all to play for the final round of matches on Monday against Senegal for second spot or best third loser to progress to the round of 16.
