Teboho Mokoena scored the all important goal in the 27th minute for victory.
Bafana Bafana face the Black Stars on Sunday in their last group match.
Crucial win for Bafana gives them three points lead on top of their group:
A draw in the away fixture will be enough for Bafana Bafana coach Hugo Broos and his charges to make to the final round of qualifiers.
