The Visitors were punished in the first half when Nqobizitha Masuku headed Bosso into the lead after connecting with a perfect cross from the right wing after 16 minutes of play.
Bosso went into half time leading 1-0.
Striker Stanley Ngala scored his debutant goal for the club when he tapped it in after Bukhosi Sibanda hit the cross bar.
Adrian Silla also managed to get his name on the score sheet, Silla took a shot from range to beat the keeper in the nearer post.
Substitute Lynoth Chikuhwa Scored the 4th goal in the dying minute to seal the game.

Speaking after the match Mpofu, said he was happy with the performance of the boys and they did a marvellous job.
“I am also happy for the game changers Bukhosi, Joel and Lynoth who managed to catch up well”. Said Mpofu.
The way the supporters cheered today was unbelievable it really motivated the players, added Mpofu.
