The former Kibuli SSS student curled the ball past diving goalkeeper Michael Kagiri into the top corner of the goal.
On the hour mark, Usama doubled the lead following a goal melee after goalkeeper Kagiri had initially saved Davis Kasirye’s close range tap-in.
The visitors pulled back a goal through Mujahid’s first time volley past goalkeeper Benjamin Ochan with 7 minutes to play to give the Catarpillars hope of a possible come back.
Mujahid’s first time shot came off 25 yards from a headed clearence by defender John Revita.
Defender Jurua had other thoughts altogether with a stoppage time winner, a goal from over 30 yards that flew straight to the goal.
There were two cautions for KCCA for Brian Majwega and Jurua (removed shirt after scoring).
