At a time when most of Jose Chameleone’s friends and associates are distancing from him, Bryan White is at the center of his woes and he is ready to help him in his battle with the Uganda Revenue Authority.
URA impounded Chameleone’s car – a Toyota Land Cruiser V8 – on Easter Monday after he failed to produce the required documents for its registration.
The car is valued at over Shs100m and its taxes are said to be about Shs120m. Chameleone got the car as a gift from a South Sudanese Socialite and Businesswoman Achai Wiir.
The car which still has South Sudanese license plates is believed to have evaded taxes since Chameleone possessed it hence the reason why URA decided to impound it.
Bryan White who was on the scene when Chameleone’s car was being towed away from the singer’s home has reportedly pledged to sort out the withstanding taxes.
At the moment, the vehicle is under URA’s possession as they continue to evaluate and compile a report on what to do next for the Leone Island Music Empire boss.
But first, where did Chameleone get the monster ride from?
With an estimated worth of about UGX100m, Chameleone’s most prized vehicle has always been a topic of discussion with several people noting that it was one of the gifts from the NRM just like the car that was given to Catherine Kusasira. Those claims are as false as they sound.
Reliably, we can inform you that the car was a gift to the legendary singer but not from State House. The Toyota Land Cruiser V8 2016 model was gifted to the singer by one of her biggest fans Achai Wiir.
Achai Wiir is a renown South Sudanese Businesswoman and Socialite who paid Chameleone to sing a song for her titled Achai Wiir. He was also paid to perform at her wedding in Juba.
The car is still registered in South Sudanese license plates to-date. Those close to Chameleone reveal that it is one of his most loved possessions hence probably the reason why he wasn’t willing to take the walk of shame when URA arose to the occasion to claim its documentation.
As it stands, the car is in the hands of URA and while speaking to an official from the authority, he revealed that Chameleone could face arrest and a fine, on top of paying the withstanding taxes if any. Failure to do so will have his car auctioned.
