All is not well for comedian Charles Kasozi aka Mariachi who is battling with four charges that include assault, careless driving, obstructing an officer on lawful duty and causing damage to government stores.
The comedian who was in a white Toyota Alphard, white in color, UAZ series, was rushing to Masaka with his colleague for a show, but in a bid to beat the traffic, they drove on the wrong lane something that led the traffic cop, Eldard Mugisha, to pull them over.
He was told to reverse and use the right lane something they did not do prompting the officer to demand for his driving permit.
"I pay tax that pays your salary and just one single phone call can get you dismissed from the force. Get the hell out of my way I have a show to attend to in Masaka," He insulted the officer.
