The Police have confirmed the arrest of Andrew Kananura aka Desh on Thursday night, according to a posting on their social media page.
Police tweeted: ‘Desh Kananura, the prime suspect in the murder of Kateregga was arrested last evening @ Entebbe’.
Kananura thereafter was whisked to the Special Investigations Unit at Kireka.
Kananura who occupied front pages in the media following the death of his employee, Abdu Katerega, at Panamera bar had been on the run since September last year.
On the morning of September 30, Kananura is said to have tortured Katerega over a tip of sh30,000 he found him with, leading to his death and many of his employees came out in the media and pinned him.
Kananura was supposed to appear at City Hall Court on Wednesday to answer charges of murder but his lawyer claimed that he was diagnosed in the United Kingdom with diabetes mellitus after having high blood sugar levels.
The State attorney requested for an adjournment in order to pave way for new investigations.
Kananura was charged together with Cyrus Maganda, Samuel Muzulewa, and Jacob Oyango, who were paraded before court to answer charges of murder.
