Kira road Police in Kampala are still investigating a case in which local musician Moses Ssali known by his stage name as Bebe Cool had an altercation with Captain Robert Namara following a minor accident at the parking yard of Peer lounge bar in Ntinda on June 19, 2022.
“The conflict arose after a minor accident. Preliminary information gathered indicates that while trying to get parking at the bar, the officer brushed Bebe Cool’s vehicle which forced the latter to come out of the vehicle and a disagreement ensued. We have retrieved the CCTV footage and are reviewing the contents to establish whether a gun was drawn as alleged by Bebe Cool. We are also looking into the allegation of the physical exchange between the two parties which could have attracted other friends,” Kampala metropolitan deputy police spokesperson, Luke Owoyesigyire said.
He said police had reached out to the ‘Mbozi za Malwa‘ singer and obtained his account of events.
“We also managed to trace Captain Namara whom we found at Gemini medical centre and as soon as he stabilizes, we shall be able to record his statement,” ASP Owoyesigyire said in a Wednesday morning statement.
In a Facebook post after the said accident, Bebe Cool said Captain Namara drew out a gun and tried to shoot him but he and his colleagues were able to disarm him.
“This man wanted to shoot me after knocking my car, as a lot is still unveiling, but we managed to disarm him and he was arrested by a police officer. Later taken to Ntinda police station. I was immediately asked by the police officer to go make a statement at the station. On arrival at the station, his colleagues had arrived at the station thereby rounding it off, and had put the police officers at gunpoint,” Bebe Cool said, adding that: “They commanded me to vacate the premises and nearly shot at me. I had to run to my car and the driver took off. I have been told that the culprit was taken away from the police station by his mates. I have made calls to the responsible persons who are the bosses of this guy and they are in the know. Watch the space as a lot more is to be unveiled here.”
