Presidential advisor on media issues Tamale Mirundi has called upon the government to award Promoter Balaam Barugahara with a medal for reporting Jose Chameleone to URA for failing to meet his tax obligations.
He praised Balaam who was identified as a whistle blower who allegedly reported Chameleone to URA.
"Balaam should be given a medal for reporting Chameleone to URA. This is the real patriotism I normally talk about. If your wife kills the maid, don't you report her to Police?. It is a very good thing that Balaam reported the matter if it is true," Tamale said while appearing on one of the local television Interviews.
Tamale Mirundi added Chameleone should learn to respect himself and clear tax arrears for his car Toyota Land cruiser V8.
"We must pay tax as Ugandans. Artistes get alot of money so why should they not pay taxes? Chameleone should take note that every one with a vehicle in this country should pay tax," Tamale Mirundi said in response to Chameleone's bitter exchange with the URA Officer.
Mirundi also said it's completely primitive for someone like Chameleone to evade taxes yet he is hoping to stand for a political office in the country.
