Kawempe Muslim Ladies will have a huge boost with the return of striker Juliet Nalukenge as they prepare to face Lady Doves on Monday in the playoffs of the 2021 FUFA Women Super League.

Nalukenge returns to Kawempe’s team fold after completing her Senior Six Examinations last week. The lethal striker played the opening two group games but eventually missed the next two.

Kawempe’s Juliet Nalukenge (in red) takes on UCU Lady Cardinals defenders.

She is delighted to get back and hopes to help her team to success, starting with the game against Lady Doves.

“I first want to thank the team for the journey moved so far and I’m glad to be back to the team. I hope my return will help the team win against Lady Doves and go ahead to emerge as Champions.” She said.

In the absence of Nalukenge, Allen Nassazi had stood tall scoring three goals and helping the team to top group 1 with nine points.

Coach Moses Nkata is aware of the threat that Lady Doves pose but he is confident his charges will go out and do the job.

“They are a good team and we are equally good so it will be a tough contest but we are ready. We have been at this stage before and I hope that can play in our favour as we face Lady Doves.”

His counterpart, Rajab Buyinza, the Associate Coach at Lady Doves is equally confident and maintains their target is to win this year’s Championship.

“We thank God who has helped us to reach this stage and we hope He will guide us in Monday’s game to eventually attain our ultimate target.” Said Buyinza.
