A rash of home break-ins during the x-mas season did not leave out the Badilisha singer Jose Chameleone. In the morning hours of boxing day, a man who was armed with petrol broke into Chameleone’s Sseguku house.
They found him in the sitting room after picking some of the christmas presents. The most disturbing, most despicable act the thief did was to set himself on fire. It’s not clear if he had wanted to torch Chameleone’s property.
Kajjansi police responded in time and arrested the thief before he could burn to death. Some of the neighbours at the scene said that the man had come to burn Daniella Atim, Jose Chameleone’s wife.
It’s been a traumatizing boxing day for the Mayanja’s because had that fire spread to other parts of the house, it could have been a bad year end for the music heavy weight.
