Kawempe Muslim beat rivals Kampala Queens 2-0 in the final game of the season at the Valley to clinch the 2023/24 Women Super League title.

Coming into the game, Kawempe needed at least a draw to seal the title while Kampala Queens had nothing to settle for but a victory.

Youngster Agnes Nabukenya continued with her splendid performance scoring the long-awaited opening goal of the encounter before Allen Nassazi put the game beyond reach.

Following a goalless first half, Nabukenya broke the deadlock with a thunderbolt free-kick at the edge of the box in the 67th minute.
