Chiukepo Msowoya put the Flames ahead in the 15th minute before Sudan levelled matters through Atahir El-Tahir.

Dalisto Sailesi scored in 32nd minute to ensure Malawi – the guests in the tournament – triumphed.

In a match which was monitored on internet streaming, Sudan  fought bravely for an equaliser, but several times squandered the chances by shooting off target and those would-be goals were well taken care my Malawi goalkeeper Simplex Nthara who  starred the encounter with several brilliant saves.

The Flames were a better side as they   raided Sudan  goal several times through Chiukepo Msowoya and Schumaker Kuwali, but could not get their finishing act right.

The Ernest Mtawali side had also a good defence marshalled by Stanely Sanudi, Miracle Gabeya, Yamikani Fodya and John Lanjesi.

Malawi group also comprises South Sudan  and Djibout.

Earlier on, South Sudan got off to a flying start after they beat Djibouti 2-0. Bruno Martinez put the victors ahead in the 28th minute before Dominic Abuyo scored the winner in 73rd minute.

Kenya edged out Uganda Cranes 2-0 in the opening match of the regional tournament.
