Over the weekend, Tanzania’s Taifa Stars played Uganda cranes in AFCON qualifiers where they thrashed the latter three goals to nil.

Following the win, Tanzanians took to social media to thumb chest among them Diamond Platnumz, who bragged about scoring them in bed and in the field at the same time in reference to his family with Zari Hassan.

The WCB President called upon his over 6.4 million followers to call out Ugandan’s and tell them Taifa Stars is a mighty team.

Cheeky comment

“Kama Tuliwafunga Magoli ya watoto tutashindwa ya Mpira....Embu Watagi Waganda wote hapa Chini waambie "Simba Kasema #TETEMA" .#HappyAfcon #TwenzetuAfcon #AfconZamuYetu #HiiNiTanzaniaMpya,” wrote Planmuz.

Platnumz’s cheeky post attracted Zari Hassan’s response, who called them bogus for being boastful at a time her home team (Uganda cranes) had already qualified for the Africa Cup of Nations set to go down in Egypt.

“Nisaidie kutag ma bogus wote, tell them we🇺🇬 already qualified for the African cup of nations. Manenos yakue madogo VIVA UGANDA #WoundedJonko #VillageExcitement #WeStillonTop #TemporyPost,” reads Zari Hassan post.

Ugandans finished at the number one spot in group L with 13 points while Taifa Stars was second with 8 points.

Africa Cup of Nations

Back at home, Kenya qualified for the Africa Cup of Nations after finishing second in Pool F after falling 1-0 to the Black Stars of Ghana, in Accra.

Both teams had already qualified for the continental showpiece set to take place in Egypt in June with Kenya returning to the Nations Cup for the first time in 15 years.

A total of 30 teams will be in Misri, Egypt come June for AFCON.
