Buganda region side Kajjansi United has dumped out Vipers SC out of the Uganda Cup after an 8-7 win on penalties following a 1-1 draw in normal time at Wankulukuku stadium.        

The Venoms that didn't live to their expectations rallied from behind to level matters after Kajjansi United had taken the lead through Michael Male in the 31st minute.

Vipers equalized in the 72nd minute after Fahad Bayo finished off substitute Paul Mucureezi assist.

After the game, they were ugly scenes as Vipers fans attacked coach Edward Golola but it took the intervention of security to save him from the hostile fans. During the scuffle, some journalists were brutally beaten.

The Kitende based side who last won the Uganda Cup in 2016 will now turn their focus to the league title which they currently top with 42 points.
