But the Visitors later levelled matters at the stroke of half time through Mugwa as they started their come back.
At the restart of the second half, it was the hosts that showed early intent of restoring their lead.
Nicholas Kabonge and Living Kabon came close but were all denied on different occasions.
And in the run of play, Mugwa scored the second for the Visitors at the hour mark to send the visiting fans into wild celebrations. His goal could later turn out winner.
URA tried to stage a come back with the introduction of Viane Ssekajugo and Ibrahim Dada, but nothing couldn’t find a breakthrough against a well organized Busoga United backline.
And in the end, Busoga United held on to pick all the needed points away from home.
The win, seventh for Busoga United this season ensured that they moved to 18 points after 18 games in the season.
