The win puts Makerere on top of group A with six points from wins against Mbarara University of Science and Technology.
On Thursday, Ndejje host Kampala International University.
Ndejje University students on the football team hope to use their Nile Special University Football League fixture against Kampala International University today to improve their chances for bursaries at the end of the semester.
The two sides managed a draw at Ndejje before KIU picked a win in Nsambya last season. But in 2013 KIU managed a 3-1 in Ndejje.
