Detectives say Kajubi has been transfered from Kajjansi police to Kampala Central Police Station under tight security. Upon arrest, Kajubi said he was living peacefully at his home and had never seen any court order showing he is a wanted man.

Kajubi survived a death sentence in April last year after a controversial ruling penned by Masaka High Court Justice Moses Mukiibi exonerated him.

State Prosecution led by Jane Kajuga had appealed against his acquittal, saying the judge did not properly evaluate evidence on record.

The Court of appeal subsequently ordered a retrial for Kato Kajubi citing error by the trial judge.

The five judges led by justice Amos Twinomujuni concurred prosecution proved the case beyond reasonable doubt but Judge Moses Mukiibi erred in law and failed to put Kajubi on defense thus misdirecting his judgment.

Justice Twinomujuni asked the case be given to another judge for trial in the high court.

Kajubi was involved in the murder of the boy on October 27th 2008 at Kawugi village in Masaka district.

Prosecution had indicated a phone print out from MTN showed on the day of the murder there was frequent communication between Kajubi and the witch doctor one Umaru Kateregga and his wife Mariam Nabukeera.

The witch doctor has insisted they murdered the boy on Kajubi’s orders and the head and private parts were handed to him.

The arrest is a credit for Maj. Gen. Kale Kayihura who vowed Kajubi would be brought to justice at all costs.

Kajubi had reportedly fled to United States. Detectives say Kayihura contacted Interpol to to cause the arrest of Kajubi in vein.
