Edwin Mwaura would however restore parity ten minutes later when he headed in an in-swinging corner kick by Evans Maliachi for a 1-1 halftime score.
Ushuru got a scare in the second half when midfielder Barrack Odhiambo was sent off for an off the ball incident.
The Taxmen would however get the winner courtesy of second half substitute Jeremiah Wanjala header, Maliachi yet again the provider.
