Kipre Tche Tche scored the second of the day to seal the emphatic win over Malakia.

Rwanda’s APR registered their second win in the group with the resounding victory against Somalia’s Heegan FC at the National Stadium. Michel Ndahinduka opened scoring for the military side in the 27th minute before Fiston Nkinzingabo doubled the lead in the 48th minute to complete the comfortable victory. APR also won their opener 1-0 against Al Shendi of Sudan, they lead group “B” with six points.
