It all happened this morning in Kafu Masindi as the Nsonyiwa singer, Richard Katto aka Richie Katts was heading to Kampala. He was driving a Toyota Rav4 (UAK series) with a friend only identified as Geoffrey, the last he recalls was moments before the car rolled several times.
There will be a vigil tonight at Kiyunga in Mukono and burial will be at Kikondo in Jinja. He is survived by his wife and one daughter. Richie Katts loved charity, he came to the rescue of a child who was severely burnt.
His last facebook post was on June 12 as he and his twin brother turned 30.
"Dear friends I want to thank you so much for sparing time to send us birthday wishes and encouragement. It was a very blessed day for us as a family and we thank all of you that made it to celebrate with us. It's exactly 30 years that I count now."
Richie Katts did not have many songs to his name but was more popular on these pages for dating Faridah Kumba, a sister to former Miss Uganda, Salma Nassanga, they later fell out and at the close of last year, Richie married his best friend, they are blessed with a daughter.
"To my sister, Kumba, he was the love of her life, her soul mate and to most of us, he was a brother and a friend, blessed are those who truly new the real Richie still can't believe it.. young and so full of dreams very intelligent young man.. Am so devastated Rip Katts," Asha Salma Nassanga, former Miss Uganda wrote
