In the 90th minute, center referee Ochom handed Wakiso Giants a soft penalty when Karim Ndugwa faked a foul in a ball challenge with defender Muwanga in the box.
Sekajugo stood up and calmly converted past Sekajja that marked the end of the game giving Wakiso Giants maximum points.
Wakiso Giants now went on 13 points after matchday nine while Proline remained pointless on the bottom of the 16-log.
