Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) Football club have successfully defended their Azam Uganda Premier League title with two matches to play.

Tom Masiko and Geofrey Sserunkuma’s penalties in the 60th and 79th minutes respectively gave KCCA a 2-0 victory over Lweza at the Phillip Omondi Stadium, Lugogo in one of the six Azam Uganda Premier League matches played on Tuesday.

The win pushed KCCA to 60 points, 8 ahead of second placed SC Villa Jogoo. Meaning that the Jogoos can not reach KCCA even if they win the rest of the games with KCCA faltering.

The Express – Proline tie was aborted in the 47th minute after incidents of insecurity at the Mutesa II Wankulukuku stadium.
