Kawempe Muslim will play in the semi-finals of the East African Secondary School Games after a 2-0 win over Alliance of Tanzania on Tuesday morning for a third consecutive time since 2017.

Two goals from talisman Juliet Nalukenge and defender Stella Musibika in the first half secured the victory which was their third consecutive at the tournament.

Kawempe Muslim head coach Ayub Khalifah said that his focus will be on the advancing beyond the stage even though his team have a game to play in the group stages.

“What matters most now is that we have qualified to semi-finals, things have to change and the focus will be how we will play in the semis because we want to be in the finals,” Ayub told

“Our target will not change, we came to win this trophy because the last two years we have managed to play the finals,” he added

Khalifan went on to admit that the team misses the late Adubango Rehema who passed away months back at the time the defender was a dependable player to the squad.

“Of course the team misses Adubango because she was a good player and her number is played by another player who was also important where she was playing”. Ayub confirmed.

Kawempe Muslim will play their last group game on Wednesday against Kenya’s Itigo and a point for them will see them top the group.
