Badi Bakari made way for Gabriel Mugabo in the 52nd minute as the visitors pushed to break the deadlock.
Bolton Omwenga was on his way out moments later, with Ouna calling on Ezekiel Omulo and his first touch went into the back of the net, slotting home from Estone Esiye’s 57th minute free kick.

Forward Michael Isabwa and midfielder Steve Wakanya were pulled off in the 70th minute double change, Mururi tasking Dennis Wafula and Kevin Muhanji to successfully see out the afternoon.
Kigadi fired wide from a from a rebound after a long ball bounced off the cross bar, visiting goal keeper Omar Zamu helpless.
