If there is one thing policemen hate in this world, it is to be disrespected but that is also one thing that celebrities hate. This is what put MC Mariachi in trouble after he assaulted a one Eldard Kamugisha, a traffic officer attached to Old Kampala police station.
The comedian along with his bouncer Michael Bunjo are detained at Old Kampala police station for assaulting the officer and tearing his uniform in the process last Saturday in Mengo.
Mariachi, born Charles Kasozi was driving his Toyota Alphad UAZ 127T in a one way lane there thus causing traffic jam. Following that traffic commotion, he was stopped by the police officer and questioned why he was doing so. The comedian was later advised to reverse and park his car for particulars but he didn’t have any. After the police officer insisted, Mariachi jumped out of the car and allegedly started roughing him up along with his bodyguard.
It was through the intervention of other officers at the scene that the officer was saved and rushed to Mulago for treatment.
The two were later arrested and taken to the cells as investigations are still going on.
