Kenya began their bid for a fourth successive African Women's Volleyball Championship title with a straight sets win over Nigeria today.
The Kenyans proved far too strong at the Yaoundé Multipurpose Sports Complex in Cameroon's capital city as they coasted to a straightforward success.
Set one turned out to be the closest as Kenya won 25-16, 25-8, 25-10.
Elsewhere in Pool B, Senegal beat the Democratic Republic of Congo in four sets.
They won 25-21, 21-25, 25-21, 25-15 to begin on a winning note.
Hosts Cameroon, the bronze medallists last time out in 2015, took on Botswana in today's sole game in Group A.
They clinched a comfortable 3-0 victory, 25-22, 25-11, 25-17.
The top two teams in Yaoundé will qualify to play at next year's World Championships, due to take place in Japan from September 29 to October 20.
