It seems the white Land Cruiser that musician Joseph Mayanja aka Jose Chameleone received from a Sudanese businesswoman as a gift is about to become a death trap for the Mayanja family.
Word coming in from our Moles indicates that Chameleone’s brother Douglas Mayanja aka Weasel is nursing injuries he sustained a few days ago after he crashed the Land Cruiser.
Moles intimate that Weasel crashed the Land Cruiser as he and others drove to Mateete township in Ssembabule district.
Following the incident, the vehicle was reportedly was towed and is currently parked somewhere in Makindye as he hunts for dime to have it repaired.
However, Weasel is not the first person to crash the Land Cruiser, because Chameleone sometime back almost lost his life after he crashed it too.
It should be recalled that the Land Cruiser was in 2020 seized by Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) operatives after Chameleone had failed to pay taxes.
However, a few weeks after recovering the vehicle from URA, Chameleone crashed it one day as he drove upcountry and had to ground it for some time.
He later managed to get it repaired it after he ordering for some parts from Kenya.
But last year when he was gifted with a Range Rover from a one a Emma, a staunch National Resistance Movement (NRM) supporter, Chameleone decided to give the Land Cruiser to Weasel, who has been driving it until he rolled the vehicle.
It is not yet clear however whether the vehicle rolled as a result of a mechanical error or the driver was intoxicated at the time of the incident, although our Moles are working tirelessly to unearth all the details.
