The two are among the 12 contestants in the final quest battling for the vacant title after champion IM Elijah Emojong was locked out of the local contest basing on the FIDE rules governing International master title holders.

The 11 rounds contest will also see Raphael Buti start the day’s action with a game against Martha Ssonko on board one as Arthur Ssegwanyi faces Haruna Nsubuga on board three.
