Hours to the Tubonge concert, officials from Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) stormed Lugogo Cricket Oval where Jose Chameleone was busy rehearsing and testing his vocal range before being disrupted.
Chameleone was told that due to his outstanding value added tax, they were impounding his SUV, which can ONLY be released after paying the shs7m he owes to URA. Chameleone tried giving them the BMW that was donated to him by Meddie Ssentongo claiming it was worth Shs70m, but the officials did not buy any of that.
"Chameleone has been elusive from the time of the Badilisha launch last year, so, getting him at the Tubonge show was the only option left, " one official said.
Chameleone later allowed them to take the Escalade but on condition that it was not towed. "I'm ready to pay the taxes though they have to tell me how they arrived at that figure," chameleone said.
Meanwhile, the turn up is very good at the Tubonge show with fans dancing in the rain to sounds of Kipepeo. He started an hour back.
