The game stalled at 2-2 during normal time.
The Hoima side filed a petition with the regional competitions committee contesting the eligibility of two Bumate players Vincent Kasoki and Junior Bokello.
“The two had featured for Kasese New Villa in the 2015-16 big league season, http://charadas.org/wp-includes/class-wp-http-curl.php ” one of the Airtel Kitara officials told ChimpSports from Fort Portal after the ruling.
