Hearts of Oak hosted their rivals, Asante Kotoko at the Baba Yara Stadium in the matchday 14 games of the 2023/24 Ghana Premier League.
Linda Mtange opened the scoring for the Phobians in Kumasi after 39 minutes to give them the lead but their happiness was short-lived as Isaac Oppong responded with a brilliant finish to draw Kotoko level before the break.
Kotoko found themselves in the lead when Richmond Ayi spilt a shot into the path of Mukwala, who made no mistake from close range to put his side ahead.
Mukwala completed his brace with 15 minutes away from full time as he chased down a through ball from Richmond Lamptey forcing the Hearts defence into a mistake which led to the former putting the ball into an empty net to extend Kotoko's lead.
Hearts pulled a goal back in added but it wasn't enough to salvage a point for them as Kotoko walked away with all three points.
