“I thank God we have have made history by winning the fourth title in a row, its special to me and my team. I had given up to the trophy to the team that signed most of my players in the early stages of the league, I have used mainly young players and wasn’t expecting them to archive this.

I call upon my competitors in the league not to give, they should focus on next season” Kawempe Muslim Coach Ayub Kalifan.

Olila’s play maker Alupo Norah failed to have the best of her game in the entire 90 minutes having only one short on target thanks to the alertness and aggressiveness Kawempe’s defender and team captain Mariam Nakabugo.
