Prison struggled in the opening set falling 26-24 but later recovered to push the University students for a 25-27 win albeit through hardwork .

Back in their element, Josp Barasa's charges minimized their errors to beat Nkumba 16-25 in the third set for 1-2 lead setting the pace for a better final set. They then completed their day's assignment with a 22-25 fourth set win  to bag the Group D match victory 1-3 (26-14, 25-27, 16-25, 22-25).

In pool 'C,' neighbors Rwanda Revenue Authority went down to West African side FAP (Cameroon) in straight sets registering a 100 per cent loss in the Championships.

After putting up a fierce fight and losing the first set 30-28, the Rwandese's morale dropped, letting go the second and third sets 25-19 and 25-16 respectively.
