Kisumu RFC are on course to return to the Kenya Cup after progressing to Championship semis with a 26-8 win over MMUST on Sat April 27, 2019 in Kisumu.
The former Kenya Cup side will take on another former Kenya Cup side- Catholic Monks- in Championship semis in exactly two weeks with the winner not only set to qualify for the final but also secure Kenya Cup promotion.
Second quarterfinal was not played as Mombasa did not travel to Kakamega to take on Western Bulls leading to the latter to get a walkover. Bulls will take on USIU in the second semifinal.
Two finalists will be promoted to the 2019/20 Kenya Cup to replace Mean Machine and Strathmore Leos.
