Uganda Cranes central midfielder Taddeo Lwanga is officially a Tanzania League champion with Simba Sports Club.
Simba clinched the Tanzania Vodacom Premier League after beating Coastal Union 2-0 at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam on Sunday evening.
Strikers John Bocco and Chrispin Mugalu scored the two first half goals that guided Simba to a 24th win of the season.
Unlike before, Taddeo Lwanga was an unused substitute as coach Didier Gomes made five changes from the line up that started in the previous game against KMC on Wednesday.
Lwanga has played an integral role in Simba’s illustrious season that has also seen the Tanzanian champions reach the knock out stages of the CAF Champions League.
The victory took Simba to 79 points, nine better than their eternal rivals Young Africans who occupy the second place with two rounds to play.
