Julius Malingumu and Rashid Okocha found the goals for the Caterpillars.
Midfielder Nelson Mandela got the consolation for the visitors.

The lead, however, was short-lived as the visitors brought the game level through Mandela three minutes later.
Halftime of this contest ended one goal apiece.
Okocha scored the winner in the 68th minute.
Busoga United’s would-be equalizer by Lawrence Tezikya was disallowed for an off-side call from the referee after goalkeeper Yusuf Wasswa had spilled a well-struck free-kick from Ivan Wani.
Referee Gilbert Ngyendo cautioned only one player in the game; Onduparaka’s Gibson Adinho in the 62nd minute.

Onduparaka thus secured their 9th victory of the season, taking them to 30 points from 19 matches as they jumped to third place.
Busoga remained on 27th points in the 7th position, a slot below their rivals BUL whom they face this Saturday in the famous Jinja derby.
