“I thought I was going to die” Ugandan Singer Narrates


Ugandan singer Pallaso jetted into Kenya on Tuesday during his layover to his home country Uganda.

Pallaso who was going back home following a whole month stay in South Africa finally addressed media regarding his Xhenophobic attack in South Africa.

Speaking during a media briefing at Main Switch studios in Athi River, Pallaso narrated how he thought he would die in South Africa.

“I thought I was going to die, at that university parking, especially when I saw the police car pass by. I have the wounds and scars that I will hold dear to me as a reminder of what I went through in the hands of fellow Africans. I call upon my brothers and sisters, to promote peace and oneness, it is our responsibility as Africans to take care of each other and spread love not hate. It’s our responsibility as Africa, to stand out and speak against xenophobic attacks. It’s time to love each other regardless of where we come from” he said

Pallaso had been attacked while in the company of his friend in South Africa. The group vandalized their car and attempted to hack him before he managed to escape.

Following the news of his attack, several gossip sites alleged that he had faked the xenophobic attack and that he was beated by a jilted man whose wife he was hooking up with.

Pallaso who is singer Jose Chameleone’s younger brother came out to rubbish the allegations saying they were attacked when they pulled up to get some food.

Pallaso also called on Africans to stand up against the Xenophobic attacks happening in South Africa.

“Xenophobia real. I am not in court and I don’t owe anybody an explanation but the greatest part of it is I’m still alive. This here is not a nigerian owned car as claimed, this is Deno kiwunyas mercedes car being demolished after i fled the scene under mob attacks. Same car I was seated in before all this happened. As you can see it parked on the roadside next to the shop we went to buy food at. I was attacked because I am in South Africa and I’m not south African. All you pass false news need to stop please. These people are heartless can take life for no reason. This is very sad. You will take it lightly but remember today it’s me tomorrow it’s someone else and it could be someone you love. Let’s stand up against xenophobic attacks fellow Africans. Death flashed very closely in my face yesterday and tomorrow you or your loved one might not be as lucky as me to survive the attack. Please world wake up. #stopxenophobia,” he said
