Chitipa defeated Kaporo Stars 2-0 at Chitipa Community ground while Mchengautuwa thrashed Ekwendeni United 4-0 in the quarter-finals.
Northern Region Football Association (NRFA) fixture secretary Ollens Msonda said Chitipa will now face Karonga United on Saturday at Karonga Community ground.
Mchengautuwa play Kabwafu, who saw off Kawaza 5-4, at Kabwafu.
Champions will receive K500 000 (about $744) while the runners-up will receive K250 000 (about $372).
This year, seven Simama League teams registered for the competition.
Karonga United team manager Bellings Kibombwe on Tuesday said they are prepared to face Chitipa.
“We know that it will be a tough game considering that there were few teams in the tournament. However, as 2015 Simama Premier League runners-up, we expect nothing less than grabbing the championship,” he said.
Mchengautuwa United chairperson David Katete challenged that the Northern Region Presidential Cup will be the first silverware his team will win in 2016.
NRFA chairperson Lameck Khonje described the progress of the league as superb.
He said: “The competition seems to be explosive especially on the part of the newcomers. Teams like Chitipa United have taken everyone by surprise. I hope the performance will be transferred to the league.”
