Nakuru City Queens and Royal Starlets secured their places in the FKF Women’s Cup Round of 16 on Saturday, February 17, 2024, by defeating NYS Queens 4-1 and Nairobi Starlets 3-0, respectively, in the preliminary round.

Lenah Wanjala opened the scoring for Nakuru City Queens in the 28th minute, completing her brace just 5 minutes before stoppage time. Lenah Were and Triza Ekesa also contributed to the scoreboard in the 50th and 92nd minute, respectively.
