The first change of the game saw Gift Ali pave way for Muzamir Mutyaba at the hour mark. The visitors too brought on Salum Khimbwa for Haruni Chanongo.
The second goal came in the 74th minute with Kyambadde doing the donkey work on the right flank before teeing up Kaddu who headed home.Immediately after scoring he was withdrawn and replaced by Muwadda Mawejje.
With five minutes on the clock, Okello put the icing on the cake, scoring his trademark goal when he cut from the right flank before curling home at the far post.
