In the Uganda Ladies Open golf tournament, Peace Amooti Kabasweka of Uganda, who led by five strokes after the first day, now finds herself seven shots off her initial score. Despite this setback, she maintains her position at the top heading into the final day on Saturday.



Kabasweka posted a 3-over-par score of 75 on the second day, making her the favorite to clinch her first Uganda Open title, even as Tanzania’s Iddi Madina Hussein poses a formidable challenge. Kabasweka had benefited from rainy conditions on the first day, and she would hope for similar weather to fend off Hussein’s pursuit.
