The Zimbabwe International was introduced at the start of halftime and on the hour Lamola forced the referee to point to the spot after being impeded by Buhle Mkhwanazi.
Mutizwa failed to make use of the advantage as the spot-kick came off the woodwork on the 60th minute spell.
Arrows did manage to pull one back in the 74th minute with Limbikani Mzava making no mistake from another spot kick.
Arrows late charge did not bear fruit with Wits holding on to a narrow 2-1 win.
