Despite losing their last group game 1-0 to Kenya’s Itigo on Wednesday, Kawempe Muslim progressed to the semifinals as leaders of Group A with 9 points.
The school coached by Ayub Khalifa had already won their opening three games.
In the semifinals on Thursday, Kawempe Muslim will take on Nyakach another Kenyan side that finished second in Group B.
Mukono High School will face Itigo in the other semifinal on Thursday.
The team coached by Ismail Mukiibi boasts of the leading goal scorer in Fauziah Najjemba who has 9 goals in 4 games.
