Rodney Ramagalela made it 3-0 in the 58th minute when he dispossessed Siboniso Gumede before slotting the ball past goalkeeper Steven Hoffman.
Namibian attacker Benson Shilongo reduced the deficit with a quick-fire brace in the latter stages but Luc Eymael's men held on to collect the three points.
