The second leg will be played in Nairobi on Saturday 7th July with the fixture set to double as an Africa Gold Cup match.
Kenya Simbas are the Elgon Cup defending champions having won away in Kampala in 2017 before a late penalty try in Nairobi saw the side then coached by Jerome Paarwater clinch the title.
