Uganda is set to host the first leg of the two-legged affair on October 26th, 2023 at the FUFA Technical centre Njeru with the return leg due 5 days later in Douala.

Ayiekoh and his technical team were tasked with the responsibility of steering the senior women’s National team on a one month interim basis as the Federation continues with the process of evaluating the applicants for the job on a permanent basis.
