At this stage, 64 players were engaged in the thick of action on a sunny day with the successful players progressing to the round of 32.

Just like the previous rounds which produced shocking results with the casualties being among others last year’s winning pair, this time round produced shocks.

Fresh from winning her four successive Entebbe Open, Irene Nakalembe combined well with Eve Magala to silence Moses Ssebugwawo and G. Byomugisha 3/2.

Nakalembe confessed;

We had a great round of golf with my partner, Magala.

We had a strategy that we followed and it is not shocking therefore, that we are smiling to the next round

Nakalembe and Magala will now face the pair of Charles Hamya playing alongside Joseph Bogera.
