                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    However, they reported stiff opposition and advanced slowly, and instead of crossing the Kagera River at Kyaka, they stopped to regroup and blew the bridge up. By blowing the bridge up they denied themselves the opportunity to advance through Kyaka and onto Bukoba. It also gave the Tanzanians the ability to hold at Kyaka and deploy their artillery there to bombard the area notrth of the river whilst reinforcements were sent.

The initial pontoon bridge elsewhere on the river was goof for troops and light vehicles and artillery, but would not support armour.
