KCCA will face local side, Azam, which beat fellows Young Africans 5-3 on penalties in the other quarter final clash.
It took the Ugandans 16 minutes to find the back of the net after a slow start, and Joseph Ochaya squeezed the ball through from the left side for the opener.
In the second half, KCCA technical bench reshuffled the line up taking out Hakim Senkumba for Owen Kasule and the change impacted positively as KCCA maintained their control of the game.
The intensive attacks by the Ugandans paved way for the second goal after captain Tom Masiko was fouled in the penalty, which playmaker Muzamiru Mutyaba converted with ease.
Seven minutes later, Ochaya took a great run towards the Sudanese defence before laying a perfect cross to Masiko, who tapped in for the third goal on 77 minutes and seal victory.
“We played a good game today and the boys played according to instructions. We have of course to improve on several mistakes we made especially on the transition from the midfield to the attack” said KCCA coach, Sam Simbwa.
In the other quarter final clash, Azam defeated ‘Young Africans’ Yanga 5-3 on penalties after barren draw in normal time.
The entire duration was action packed, but the defensive discipline of both backlines didn’t leave any room for error.
Chances were created but the well-structured Azam three man defence of Pascal Wawa, Aggrey Morris and Kheri Salum didn’t give Yanga’s Donald Ngoma and Deus Kaseke any freedom.
On the other side, Yanga duo, Nadir Haroub and Kelvin Yondani were not in any mood to tolerate John Bocco and Kipre Tchetche.
Goalkeepers’ Ally Mustafa of Yanga and Azam’s Manula Aishi were man of the match contenders for their exceptional display between the posts.
During penalties, Kipre, Bocco, Hamid Mao, Wawa and Aggrey Morris scored for Azam whilst Salum Telela, Nadir Haroub and Godfrey Mwaishuya were on target for Yanga. Hajji Mwinyi missed his kick from the spot.
Azam will face KCCA in the semifinals on Friday in a repeat of the group stage meeting which Azam won 1-0.
Sudanese side, Al Khartoum will face Kenya’s Gor Mahia in the other semi final match.
