KCCA will host Bukedea Town Council FC in the round of 32 of the Stanbic Uganda Cup.

Mike Mutebi spoke to the KCCA FC Media ahead of this tie and had this to say;

We are up for a perfect test and it will be a good game for the players and fans.


People could think [Bukedea] will be easy because they do not know much about it. But we know the problems we can have, and the problems we can cause as well.


We need to show the hunger from the start and think of this test before Vipers next week.


The task at hand is Bukedea and we have to get done with that before we can think of anything else.
