Trouble Looms As Anti-corruption Court Summons Legendary Chameleone Over Flouting URA Rules

Meanwhile, Chief Magistrate, Ms Pamella Ocaya Lumunu, has since summoned the singer to appear in the Kololo-based court on July 30, 2020.

“Whereas your attendance is necessary to answer to the charges of being in possession of uncustomed goods, you are hereby commanded by the Uganda government to appear in the Anti-Corruption Court at Kololo on the 30th July 2020 at 9:00am,” read in part the summons of the court to the singer.

It’s alleged that on April 12 this year, the singer was found in possession of vehicle registration number SSD 499B Toyota Land Cruiser V8 model GRJ valued at Shs. 137, 350,725 by the Uganda Revenue Authority Enforcement Team, which intercepted the said vehicle.

This website ran a story of how Chameleon was intercepted by URA enforcement teams at Bulange Mengo in Kampala, and required to avail the documents regarding the legal status of his car in Uganda which he promised to avail but he has reportedly failed since.

Further, URA says the singer has not paid the import duty for his car and yet he knew that the vehicle was uncustomed.
Chameleon is also charged for failure to produce documentation when required contrary to Section 204 (b) of the East African Community Customs Management Act, 2004.
