Harare - South Africa’s Joseph Aden and Uganda’s Rukiya Nayiga respectively claimed the men’s and women’s singles championships medals at the Esther Lungu East and Southern Africa Pool Championships in Zambia last weekend.

The pool tournament was organised such that each participant had two “lives”.

A winner in the first life was to play the winner of the second life, but South Africa Aden proved to good the other 78 male participants as he won both lives in the men’s categories.

He was to be the only finalist of the expected two, walking away with both the winners and runners up medal.

Aden walked away US$4,100 richer for his exploits with the cue stick.

In the women’s category, Nayiga was crowned champion after warding off the challenge of countrywoman Rita Nimusiima 9-5 in the final.

Nayiga received US$2,750 for being crowned the women’s singles champion.

With COVID-19 lockdown restrictions being tightened in many countries, Botswana and Lesotho did not send any competitors, while Zimbabwe had only one participant, women’s singles player Priscilla Chisoro.

In the team event, Uganda came out tops and took home the US$3,300 prize money
