DR Congo President Rewards CHAN Winners With Jeeps(Photos)



Democratic Republic of Congo President Joseph Kabila presented the country's African Nations Championship winners with a fleet of high-end Sports Utility Vehicles on Tuesday, AFP reports.


Kabila symbolically handed over keys to the top of the range cars to DR Congo captain Joel Kimwaki and coach Florent Ibenge at a ceremony in Kinshasa.

DR Congo defeated Mali 3-0 in Sunday's final in Kigali, Rwanda.

The players and officials were decorated with "Sporting Merit" medals at a reception at the presidential palace.

"May this trophy serve to forge peace and stability in our country," said Kabila at a time of fragile political stability.

DR Congo became the first country to win the CHAN, which is reserved for players who play in national leagues, twice after success in the inaugural competition in 2009.
