Two goals in each half from tear away striker Godfrey Nguwodzawo and substitute Willard Kalongonda ensured the Sunshine Boys move up to 14 points and extended Mambas’ winless streak to five matches.
Within 10 minutes, City thrust themselves ahead when Trymore Nyamadzawo released Nguwodzawo on the left flank who coolly slid the ball past an already drawn out John Nomore in goals for Mambas.
In the second half, the Sunshine Boys shined even brighter probing the Mambas rearguard intensely and duly extended their lead two minutes from stoppage time.
Kalongonda, who had come just two minutes earlier, reacted well to Crybert Muvuti’s pin pointer and smashed his effort home from 10 metres to seal victory for the hosts.
