Jose Chameleone survived being shot at yesterday afternoon. He happened to stop by a petrol station on Bombo road known by the Kobil brand and while there he fueled his vehicle. Being an artiste he is the pump attendants demanded that he sings for them which he did after paying for his fuel to the tune of 100,000/- in denominations of 50,000/- each.
At the time they were with his wife Daniella Atim who happened to be driving, so as they were driving off the pump attendant hit the car from behind asking them to stop as one of the notes tendered in were fake. Jose ordered his wife to drive on as they were rushing to one of the clinics in Wandegeya.
On their way back, a Kobil guard stopped them and the two simply drove off ignoring him. The guard decided to pursue them on a motor bike or "boda-boda". That part of Kampala road was in a bit of a jam, something that favoured the guard on the boda-boda to catch up with the Ba Yuda star around King Fahd.
The guard asked Chameleone to stop and to this the star outrightly objected. He almost knocked him prompting the guard to shoot in the air. This forced all those who had gathered to run for their dear lives. The star drove straight to the Central Police Station(CPS). The guard also followed him to the police station.
The two made statements. The guard accused Chameleone for deposting fake notes at the petrol station while Chameleone also opended up a case against the guard, one James Agong for tring to kill him.
It should be recalled that in December 2008, this is the same man who sleepwalked through his hotel room window at 3rd floor to the ground. Early this year the Ba Yuda star was involved in a fight with one businessman and his girl friend which scuffle left him admitted for sometime and yet he had to rehearse for the album launch.
Did Ginimbi and Mimi Moana know they were about to die?
