The outcome of the matched served academic purposes as KCCA had wrapped up the title last Tuesday after rivals Vipers were held 1-1 by URA in the penultimate match of the season.
It was a fanfare on Friday afternoon as fans converged at the club’s home, Lugogo as early as 10am and marched to Nakivubo amidst drumming and dancing.
Fred Segujja gave the visitors the lead after 33 minutes beating both Timothy Awani and Godfrey Ssembatya on the ball from Nasser Muzamiru. The second half was dominated by KCCA, pushing for the equalizer but they had to wait until the 86th minute when Joseph Ochaya volleyed home from Okot’s assist.
Once the referee blew the final whistle at Nakivubo, came the moment every KCCA fan, legends, players and all connected with the club had been waiting for – lifting of the trophy.
It was held by aloft by captain Denis Okot to a rapturous applause from the ‘Yellow Army’ inside the stadium.
The feat was KCCA coach Mutebi’s first ever title in over 20 years in the top flight of Uganda football.
“It’s a great feeling that I can`t explain as a person. It’s an ingredient you would like to add on the efforts you have invested and I believe it’s time to celebrate as a person” said Mutebi
KCCA will represent Uganda in next year’s CAF Champions League and regional CECAFA Club Championships.
