“It was competitive but were not taken up with fear to lose or excitement to win. We kept focused and used our experience, that is why we won,” Somoka said.

Nkumba, MUBS, St. Lawrence, Bishop Stuart, KIU, YMCA Comprehensive University, Kyambogo, IUEA, Cavendish, Busitema, Busoga, Mutesa 1 and Multitech Business School competed in the two-day championship this year.
