Harambee Starlets will contest the final of the CECAFA Women Championships, slated for Monday, November 25, 2019, in Tanzania.

This follows a resounding 5-0 win over Burundi in the semifinals played on Saturday at the Azam Complex in Chamazi.

A brace by Gentrix Shikangwa, who currently tops the scorers’ chart, coupled with a goal apiece by Dorcas Shikobe, Mwanalima Adam and Corazone Aquino, saw the Starlets express their dominance ahead of the high stake final.

“I am happy with not only the result but also the performance of the team. Our focus is now on the final, and I am confident that we will come home with the trophy,” said coach Ouma.

The final, pitting the Starlets against either of hosts Tanzania or Uganda, will be played on Monday.
