Four teams will tussle out in the last remaining fixtures of the Uganda cup last eight on Sunday afternoon.

The task will however not be an easy one for the regional side, owing to the fact that the league defending champions are facing stern competition in the league and this could be a rather easier opportunity to get silverware this season.

KCCA FC eliminated 2014 Cup Champions and Big league side Ndejje university en route to quarters but coach Mubiru has warned his charges of complacency against the low ranked opponents, “Kyambogo is no walkover and the boys understand that!”- He told the club media.

The Lugogo side has scooped four consecutive league wins without conceding a single goal.

SC Victoria vs. SC Villa

SC Victoria host SC Villa at home in Namboole in the back of a 2-0 loss to KCCA FC on Friday. Coach Morley Bwekwaso comes in this game under pressure after it was recently reported that the new club owner MP Muhammad Nseereko had given the coach a four game ultimatum.

The 2013 champions virtually have no chance of winning the league and hence all focus will be on Sunday’s game.

SC Villa beat Lweza by 3-1 in the league on Friday to earn coach Kirya his first win in the club since assuming reigns from Sam Simbwa.

The club is involved in the title race standing at the third spot and will put a lot in this game if they are to increase any chances of appearing in the continental surface the coming season. The eight time winners last won the trophy in 2009 after beating URA in finals.

Lweza FC and BUL FC have already qualified for the semifinals after seeing off Police FC and Bright stars in the earlier games.

It’s deplorable to find South Africans killing their fellow Africans who once stood by them, doctor http://crunchydomesticgoddess.com/wp-content/plugins/woocommerce/includes/class-wc-product-variable.php housed them and even fed them when they were suffering during the black days of apartheid policy.

It certainly beats my conscience to see an African maiming his fellow innocent African sister or brother.

Countries including Mozambique, Zambia and many others directly contributed to the fight against apartheid but their nationals are not spared, ooh! What a shame to the land of Madiba.

Their own father of the nation a one Nelson Mandela was sheltered in Tanzania at one time but this has taught them nothing nor reminded them something from their past.

I am surely disappointed by the current killings, genocide and xenophobic attacks in South Africa and the rate at which it is worsening each day and period that passes. The 2008 and the ongoing attacks on other Africans living in South Africa have escalated over time and this has generated negative sentiments among other Africans towards all South Africans.

We should not sit back and see our fellow African brothers and sisters butchered like hens and goats “As A south African hero and musician, the late Lucky Dube pointed out in his song “the Victims of the situation”.

If we don’t end these massacres, the diplomatic and bilateral relationships of South Africa and other African countries are heading to dogs. Let’s stop the escalation of the massacres, let’s pull our voices and efforts together and condemn such acts of the misguided section of the South African population.

I call upon African Union a leading umbrella which has always fought for African interests and a pan African agenda to devise means and put an end to these attacks that have claimed lives of our fellow African brothers and sisters.

This will go a long way in demonstrating to Africans, the relevance of the Union in solving African challenges and bringing together all African countries.
