Police quizzes City Lawyer Fred Muwema

City lawyer Fred Muwema has today been interrogated by the police, over billions of Shillings allegedly owed to Bunyoro tobacco farmers.

Muwema appeared before the police special investigations unit in Naguru, from where he was being questioned.

The city lawyer is alleged to have represented tobacco farmers in a suit against British American Tobacco 4 years ago, resulting into a court settlement worth 4.6 billion shillings.

The money was reportedly paid into his account for transfer to the farmers, some of whom are now demanding for payment.

He is alleged to have paid some of the 2000 farmers, leaving out others, who are now threatening to demonstrate.

Assistant Superintendent of police at the special investigations unit Aaron Aidro says investigations into the matter are still ongoing.
