This is even as Zambia are through to the next round of the 2016 African Nations Championship after defeating Uganda 1-0 in Gisenyi.
Zambia’s Christopher Katongo’s at 41st minute via a header silenced the Cranes as Chipolopolo become the third team to qualify for the quarter-finals, joining hosts Rwanda and DR Congo in the last eight.
Zimbabwe’s Sissoko connected home from a Lassana Samake free-kick eight minutes from time to ensure the maximum points for Les Aigles as the Brave Warriors crash of the competition following their second successive loss.
Zimbabwe paid the price for their wastefulness in front of goal in a game they were clearly the better side.
