Musician and aspiring Lord Mayor of Kampala Joseph Mayanja aka Jose Chameleon risks being arrested for refusing to comply with URA. Our sources in Nakawa the HQ of the tax collecting body tell us that all is not well after a video of Sam Muwereke a URA enforcement officer trying to demand papers belonging to Chameleon’s V8 went viral.
Apparently the enforcement team led by Ivan Kakaire the URA enforcement manager is furious that Chameleon was not only ignorant of the URA operations but also arrogant to one of its top officers.
THE MATTER IS BEING LOOKED INTO AND IF CHAMELEON DOESN’T PRODUCE PAPERS TO THAT CAR IN 2 DAYS,CHANCES OF HIM BEING ARRESTED AND HIS CAR BEING IMPOUNDED ARE HIGH,our source told us.
URA was tipped off in 2018 when Chameleon brought in the V8 but URA got information that this is the second car the celebrated musician brought in and looks similar to the previous one thats still a V8.
This is not the first time Chameleon has had a run in with URA. In 2014,URA impounded Chameleon’s escalade moments before his BADILISHA show at Kyadondo Cricket Oval.
URA said that Chameleon had accumulated 42m in income and Value Added taxes from his previous shows and despite several reminders since November 2013, the singer had failed to turn up.
