In a case of mistaken identity, a man suspected to have taken part in the death of musician Moses Sekibogo alias Mowzey Radio has been arrested and later released in Fort Portal. 

According to Musa Tibakirana, the Kabarole District Police Commander, the man was arrested at 6:30 am on Sunday at the popular Glue Pot bar in Fort Portal town.  Tibakirana explains that they received information from revellers at the bar that there was a bearded man who resembles Godfrey Wamala, who is on police's wanted list over the death of Mowzey Radio. 

He says  that police detectives were dispatched to the bar and arrested the man.  

He was then taken to Fort Portal Police Station and upon interrogation, it was established that he is Ivan Muhihi, a resident of Kireka in Kampala and hailing from Rukingiri district.

Wamala, a bouncer at De Bar a popular hangout place in Entebbe, is variously mentioned as having been involved in brawl with Mowzey Radio on the night of January 22. The 35-year-old singer died on February 1 at Case Hospital where he had been hospitalised after reportedly sustaining head injuries during the fight. 

Wamala has since gone missing.
