The hosts scored the lone goal through Steven Mukwala who capitalised on a well taken Geoffrey Wasswa throw after 44 minutes on Saturday. Mukwala made no mistake in beating Cameroon's goalkeeper Christopher Assimba Atangana from close range, reports Xinhua news agency.
In the second half, Uganda's Abubaker Kasule was booked for a foul on Ibrahim Abba.
Cameroon continued to play a highly passing and defensive game, but still failed to break the Ugandan defenders.
