Okwi who had assisted Bocco for the third sealed the win at the death of second half.
In Botswana, Ivan Ntege produced a man of the match performance as his side Township Rollers rolled over Jamal Salim's Al Merreikh in a 4-0 win. Ntege earned plaudits from his club after the game.
"Our Ugandan International midfielder Ivan Ntege, who showcased a marvelous all-round performance in today's game against Al-Merrikh SC, once played against these Sudanese giants in 2014, while he was with his hometown football team Kampala City Capital Authority FC (KCCA FC) in Uganda," the club posted.
