Lwengo's Mutabazi kicked off RwandAir flight Ads (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Lwengo LCV Chairman, George Mutabazi, was kicked off a RwandAir flight that was heading to Entebbe from Kigali. In a 14-second-video that has emerged, Mutabazi who is clad in a pink shirt and a navy blue suit is seen being dragged off the plane while yelling on top of his voice;

"Woowee....Why do you do this to me, I'm a leader, What have I done, Do I deserve this, Do I deserve this really, why is this happening to me, what have I done...." But the two cops that held him by his trousers with his feet barely touching the plane corridor did not entertain his pleas, he was thrown off the plane.

Flight attendants found him to be too drunk and therefore, unfit to travel as he could be a nuisance to other passengers.

It was a dramatic moment for the Lwengo residents who landed on the clip. Mutabazi is on record for having unleashed several strokes of the cane to Lwengo residents who he found either taking alcohol during working hours or were idle and disorderly.

He also does not entertain grass thatched houses in his area. These and many more is what is best known of The national association of local governments president, George Mutabazi.

In a typical movie style of a star who never dies, George Mutabazi has come out to defend his actions;

"I happened to have travelled to Bujumbura Burundi for a two day's conference organized by the Secretary General's Assembly on East African Communities..I travelled via Kigali and on my way back I had 5 hour delay of transit and I walked out of the airport and came back and checked in for my ebb flight in time..."

"While on the plane, there was a problem of mistaken Indentity, I was asked to get off the plane, I questioned why, so there was a scuffle, so I made an alarm because I didn't know where I was going, so I had to attract the attention of my fellow passengers so that if anything happened to me, they would know, but on talking to security officials they realized there was no problem. Whatever is on social media, please igone, and thanks to all those who have showed their concern."

Frequently asked Chameleone questions

Uganda Online - Sat, 06/24/2017 - 17:01

Frequently asked Chameleone questions- Part 1

How long have you been doing music? I began my singing career in 1990 as a DJ at a night club in Maganjo while studying at Progressive Secondary School. I was later signed by Kenyan record label, Ogopa DJ's.

Ads (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

My first album was Bageya and it was done in 2000, followed by Mama Mia in 2001. Njokaribu and Golden Vice followed in that order. Next was Mambo Bado in 2004, Kipepeo in 2005, Shida Za Dunia in 2006. Sivyyo Ndivyo and Katupakase were the 2007 albums. 2009 was for Bayuda followed by Vumilia in 2010, Valu Valu in 2012, Badilisha in 2013 and Tubonge in 2014.

Other than music what else do you do for a living? I have been saving for the last 20 years. When I'm not on stage, I'm a farmer. I have 20 acres of land in Mityana, 1 square mile in Mubende. I have 400 goats and 280 cows on all my farms. I have acres of maize, I also have several apartments where I get rent, Daniella is in charge.

What is your take on the local music awards? Every artist deserves to be awarded for the work well done, but some organizers don't understand the music industry. They fabricate generations of musicians.

Ads (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

It's been a while since you last won an award! - I not winning an award is okay, let them win their awards while I make the money. Awards are needed by upcoming artistes to establish their careers, I built my career on a solid foundation with amazing love from my fans all over Africa and beyond..
