Mathare United finally broke their duck as they beat Nairobi City Stars 1-0 to register their first league win this season at Nyayo Stadium.
Francis Ouma struck midway the second half to get the Slum boys to winning ways.
In the first match played at the same venue, champions Tusker were held to a barren draw by KCB.
It was a match full of wasted chances from both sides though the bankers showed superiority.
Nigerian import Joseph Emeka had the first miss for Tusker in the 27th minute after beating the bankersâ defence. Then Geoffrey Maina should have put KCB ahead in the 36th minute, but shot wide with acres of space to score.
Tusker forward Patrick Kagogo missed in the 31st minute with his low ground shot going just wide. Tusker midfielder Jerry Santos did not finish the first half after he was carried off due to injury and his replacement Paul Were added punch.
KCBâs Elvis Ayanyâs miss in the 43rd minute was the highlight of the first half for the bankers.
Obadiah Ndege came in the second half for the brewers and added a lot of punch upfront, but the KCB defence proved unbeatable.
Danger man Geoffrey Simiyu scored two goals in the 50th and 62nd minutes as Muhoroni claimed yet another emphatic victory.
Karuturiâs consolation goal came in the 65th minute.
