Radio died on Thursday morning at Case hospital where he had been admitted following a bar fight at De Bar, a popular hangout in Entebbe on January 22.
Kampala Metropolitan police spokesperson Luke Owoyesigyire confirmed the arrest of Wamala on Sunday night.
“Following a tip off to police, our operatives swung into action arresting Wamala from Kyengera, Wakiso district,” Owoyesigyire told this website.
“On interrogation, he confessed that two days after the incident, he sought refuge at his friend’s house in Kyengera.”
Speaking to mourners on Saturday, Mowzey Radio’s mother asked police and other authorities to ensure the killers of her son are arrested and face the wrath of the law.
