The latest pitfall was that 2-1 home loss to West Nile based Paidha Black Angels at the StarTimes Stadium, Lugogo on Monday, November 11, 2019.

Katwe United had an upper hand in the first half, even managing to find the back of the net through talisman Allan Tebusweke but the effort was disallowed for off-side.

In the second stanza, Paidha Black Angels fought back gallantly.

Fanihas Obai scored the opener in the 58th minute, finishing with a simple tap off winger Living Kabon’s well-laid ball from the left flank.

A thunderous bullet shot from Kabon crowned the day on the stroke of full time.
