CAPTIONS: Bebe Cool and Zuena's car and the couple peforming in Lira hours before the accident.
Bebe Cool’s recovery from gunshots was yesterday jeopardized after the singer was involved in a nasty accident in Kakooge, Nakasongola on the Kampala–Gulu highway. According to fellow artiste Jose Chameleone, who was driving behind his colleague, Bebe Cool’s car veered off the road after its rear tyre bust. The car was damaged substantially, said Nakasongola Police Station boss Peter Magezi. They were returning from a show in Lira.
“I was driving in front of him but when I branched off to refuel my car, he passed me,” said Chameleone. “Shortly somebody came to our car and told us that our friend had ‘finished off his car’ but I didn’t think it was Bebe Cool. When we rushed to the scene of the accident I found that it was Zuena’s car in accident but we found when they had been taken to a clinic.”
Chameleone told Daily Monitor that Bebe Cool, who was with his wife Zuena Kirema and three other people in the car, was not badly hurt. Zuena, however, was unconscious when they were taken to a local clinic for first aid. “Zuena and Bebe’s bouncer were seriously hurt,” said Chameleone. The car, a Honda CRV that Bebe bought Zuena as a present when she returned to his home recently, was smashed beyond repair.
Bebe Cool said, after the accident, that he was not injured but needed to see doctors first.
One of the guys who were in the car with Bebe only identified as Ssiwa told Rafshizzle that the car was not moving fast.
