Kitata was a first-half substitute for Faisal Muwawu in the 26th minute before opening the scoring business off Brian Kalumba’s assist 10 minutes into the final stanza.

Kalumba released Kitata into space before the former The Saints, SC Villa, and UPDF gangly forward flipped the ball through the legs of the advancing goalkeeper Saidi Keni for the opener.
