Wakiso Giants have continued to boost their survival hopes following their 7-2 win against Kitara FC.

This was the fourth successive home league win for the Douglas Bamweyana coached side.

Viane Ssekajugo scored a brace while Edward Satulo, Rahmat Ssenfuka, Gadaffi Wahab, Joshua Lubwama and Amos Muwonge netted one apiece.

Lubwama opened the scoring after only thirteen minutes from the spot after Ssekajugo was felled in the area.

But Wakiso lost skipper Hassan Ssenyonjo to injury two minutes later as he was replaced by Gadaffi Wahab.

Wakiso’s second goal came in the 40th minute with Satulo scoring a low drive after Kitara clearance from a corner got to him just outside the area.

Ssekajugo then made it 3-0 at the half time whistle reacting faster to punish Musa Doka error.

Wahab extended the lead in the 57th minute with a brilliant finish after intercepting an opponent’s move.


Ssenfuka added another goal nine minutes later.

Wakiso’s sixth goal was scored by Ssekajugo with a wonderful strike after beating the offside trap.

Muwonge then finished the job for Wakiso when he dinked a ball over the Kitara custodian to score the 7th.

The visitors pulled two goals back through Patrick Kusemererwa and Edson Agondeze who capitalised on errors.

Wakiso consolidated their ninth position on the table with 30 points.

Meanwhile, Kitara are rooted at the foot of the table with just 10 points.

In their next fixtures, Wakiso are at home to BUL FC on Tuesday.

Kitara on the other hand, will host MYDA on the same day.
