The Ugandan U19 team, who ended winners of the 2009 ICC Africa U19 CWCQ, continued its winning ways in this year's qualifier.
The Uganda bowling attack for the second day bowled their opposition out for under a hundred. Prize bowler for Uganda was Faruk Ochimi with four Tanzanian wickets for 20 runs.
The Tanzania attack hardly troubled the Ugandans, who knocked the target off in 16 overs.
At the Wanderers Oval in Windhoek, the Namibian U19 team comprehensively beat neighbours Zambia.
Stephan Baard was the pick of the Namibian bowlers with 4 for 35 in six overs as Zambia made 158 all out. The run chase began in earnest with Namibia breaking at lunch with 80 for 1. They passed the target score in the 32nd over with seven wickets in hand, with Justin Baard making 45.
In the surprise of the day, Nigeria scored a fantastic win over Botswana. Botswana scored 182 for 9 in its 50 overs. Nigeria then struggled to 93 for 7, before a fighting seventh wicket partnership of 68 saw them recover and win by two wickets.
In the final game of the day, Kenya was given a run for their money but eventually overcame Sierra Leone by 20 runs.
