Zanzibar's duo to miss Cecafa semi final clash againts Uganda

Kenya vs Zanzibar

Kenya vs Zanzibar

Zanzibar will miss the services of Suleiman Khamis and Amour Suleiman for the Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup semi-final against Uganda.

Zanzibar players during a previous match.

Abdul Aziz Makame put Zanzibar in front in the 23 minute, before Derrick Nsibambi equalized for Uganda Cranes in the 29th minute.

In the first semis played on Thursday at the same venue, hosts Kenya defeated Burundi by a solitary goal to qualify for the final.

That tag has fallen to Uganda for the better part of the past decade but with Stars having marched the Cranes' success in the tournament during the last two editions, tomorrow's final will be an opportunity for them to regain the regional kingpin tag.

It was an advantage the record Cecafa winners failed to take and were punished five minutes after the break when Nsumbuga Joseph was shown a straight red card for a professional foul in the box on Amad Mohammed.

Kenya qualified for the semis as group leaders while Zanzibar finished second. The teams drew 0-0 in their group A match.

Harambee Stars will be hunting for the 6th CECAFA title while Zanzibar will be seeking their maiden CECAFA title.
