Enyimba avoid 'top' guns — CAF CC Draw

The other two former African champions in the draw - CARA of Congo Brazzaville and Enyimba of Nigeria - face each other in Group C, and Djoliba of Mali and Williamsville of the Ivory Coast.

They will ensure a tough tussle in the group phase of African football's secondary club competition.

Rayon Sports returned on Friday morning to a hero's welcome from thousands of their supporters and proceeded to Kigali Stadium in Nyamirambo where they celebrated until the wee hours.

"I thank God for helping us reach the group stage", he continued.

The trio, which has Rayon and Gor Mahia as first timers at the group stage, are joined in Group D by Algerian giants, USM Alger.

No club from East Africa has won a continental club title since 1989 when Al Merreikh of Sudan won the now defunct African Cup Winners Cup.

Former Chairman Heartland of Owerri Ignatius Okeahialam made the submission while reacting to massive ouster of three Nigerian clubs from the CAF Champions League and CAF Confederation cup respectively.

Aduana Stars have been drawn in Group A with Raja Casablanca of Morocco, ASEC Mimosas of Ivory Coast and AS Vita Club of DR Congo.
