Ahead of the second game of Group A match at the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Egypt between Uganda and Zimbabwe, nationals from both countries have taken the war to social media. Uganda won its first game against DR Congo 2-0 while Zimbabwe lost 1-0 to hosts Egypt in the tournament opening game.
What seemingly started as a one woman war by Uganda’s self declared queen of twar (twitter war) Evelyn_Nakayi (twitter handle) two days ago against Zimbabweans has now sucked in other twitterers from both countries.
Initially, a number of Ugandans asked Nakayi to apologise to Zimbabweans for the attacks on their country and nationals but many more soon joined the banter under the hastag #UGAZIM mocking the the looks and smiles of the countries' respective presidents, grammar of the twitterers, beauty queens from both countries, economy, corruption scandals.

All Zimbabweans probably camped in one building, tapping WiFi to fight @Evelyn_Nakayi 😂. Is this what Mugabe left for?— Faisal (@PyeparFaisal) June 25, 2019
