KCCA will be on the road for the First leg on September 17 and host the Second leg on October 1.
If the aggregate score will be tied after the second leg, the away goals rule will be applied, and if still tied, extra time will not be played, and the penalty shoot-out will be used to determine the winner.
The 16 winners of the second round will advance to the group stage.
