Wakiso had eliminated Vision FC by forfeiture on round of 64 and Kireka United on round of 32 via penalties.

To reach this stage, Tooro United had eased past Entebbe before eliminating holders KCCA FC at round of 64 and 32 respectively.

Tooro United will leave Bugembe disappointed after missing the best chances on the day with Godfrey Lwesibwa in staring role.

Wakiso Fans and Officials into frenzy celebrations

The former Villa forward got Hassan Wasswa Dazo out of his way in the 16th minute but his attempt on goal was far and wide.

Mahad Yaya came close in the second half but was denied with by the crossbar.

Willy Kavuma shot over the bar from close range, Allan Kayiwa had his attempt blocked before Lwesibawa’s resultant side foot volley was easily collected by Mutumba.

Wakiso looked a threat in set pieces but couldn’t find a break through as Karim Ndugwa lacked enough supply.
