Uganda began their title defence of the Africa Netball Cup with a comfortable victory over Zambia.
Having triumphed in both 2017 and 2018, Uganda are aiming for a third consecutive title.
They recorded a 67-33 victory over Zambia at Belleville Velodrome.
Hosts South Africa then earned their third successive win of the tournament, easing past Zimbabwe 69-39.
Kenya played two matches, beating Lesotho 74-24 in the first.
They were not as fortunate in the second, however, suffering a heavy 72-34 defeat to Malawi.
Competition continues tomorrow, with Uganda taking on Lesotho and South Africa.
Zimbabwe are scheduled to play Kenya and Lesotho, while Zambia meet Malawi.
