A prominent lawyer in Kampala City has been arrested for alleged murder.
 
Vincent Mugerwa, attached to Mugerwa and Kanyike company advocates, is jointly accused with Salambwa and Nelson Kajooba for the alleged murder of  Enock Mutabazi.
 
Ibin Ssekumbi, the Kampala metropolitan police public relation officer, says Salambwa and Kajooba, of Kiwale-Nawalya in Kasangati, Wakiso district had a land dispute with James Mugabi, but just as the matter seemed to settle with a border demarcation, the lawyer objected to this sparking off a fight that resulted into the death of Mutabazi, who was a care taker. The incident occurred on June 17th.
 
Police says that the trio is being detained at Kira police station pending their arraignment in court to face murder charges.
 
Ssekumbi says the land protection Unit of the Uganda Police Force is overwhelmed by the number of land related cases flowing into their offices.
 
He says the unit registers between five to six cases per day.
