Ibrahim Kazindula, Walter Ochora and second half substitute Alex Kitata were on target for the 2022 Uganda Cup winners.

Simba, coached by former Express and Wakiso Giants coach Alex Gitta proved a hard nut to crack until the stroke of halftime.

Kazindula broke the deadlock in the 41st minute with a thumping shot after goalkeeper Hamza Lutaaya had saved an initial shot.

Ochora doubled the lead with a header from Jeromy Kirya’s well delivered corner kick in the 54th minute.

Kitata who replaced Gerald Ogweti in the 70th minute, made it 3-0 in the added minutes.
