Tanzania: Mwananchi FC Too Good for New Habari

Dar Es Salaam — Mwananchi FC maintained their winning streak in friendly matches yesterday, this time the victims being New Habari Corporation.

Mwananchi's regular goal-getter Majuto Omary struck twice to steer his team to the convincing win, their second over New Habari in two months or so, on Shekilango grounds. New Habari also succumbed to a painful 4-0 defeat at the hands of Mwananchi during the recent Media Day in the city.

Majuto, who was a real thorn in the flesh for New Habari defenders, opened the scoring three minutes into the game with a long range shot, which went straight into the yawning net. Five minutes later, Majuto came into the picture, this time off a Salum Jaba pass, as Mwananchi continued to command the proceedings.

Sensing the danger of losing the game by a bigger margin, New Habari resorted to rough tackles in an attempt to frustrate well-drilled and fast-moving Mwananchi players.

New Habari ought to have pulled one back in the 35th minute when striker Kulwa Karedia beat defenders Sweebert Lukonge and Jaba Thomas, only to see his close range shot cleared by goalie Ibrahim Bakari.

On resumption, Mwananchi started where they had left out and made it 3-0 just after the hour mark through Calvin Kiwia, before New Habari narrowed the deficit through Karedia.
