Bookmakers had tipped Olila High School and Aziz Damani Masaka SS as overwhelming favourites to win the 50 overs title.
Masaka SS, a franchise from the Damani family remain highly motivated with the Mehta T20 Premier already in the bag.
The historic club has endured two seasons in the second division following their relegation in 2016.
A number of 50 overs matches explain Uganda’s prolonged stay in South Africa.
It is important to note that Uganda is making their first appearance at the showpiece.
Challengers’ youngster Steven Wabwose’s half century of 62 from 76 balls propelled the board to 212 from 50 overs.
Uganda’s journey from recovery has so far been well documented
Having already sealed the league, Damani are just one win away from completing an unbeaten campaign this season.
Their fall in the pecking order has partly been because of the arrival of the moneyed Aziz Damani.
The 16-year-old is full of life and can still be lethal with the bat.
