Shafic Kiberu and Daniel Shabena goals sent Mbale Heroes back to the Uganda Premier league.

James Jarieko’s late strike for Onduparaka was just a consolation for the Arua based side who will spend another season in the FUFA Big League.

Kiberu fired Ddungu’s coached side into the lead from a sensational free kick goal at the stroke of halftime.

Shabena doubled their lead in the 70th minute to send the home fans into elation.

Mbale Heroes are third on the FUFA Big League table with 49 points and join leaders Police FC and Lugazi into next season’s Uganda Premier league.
