Former Soroti Municipality MP Capt Mike Mukula has said he will help faded singer Ivan Kauma, popularly known as Qute Kaye who was arrested yesterday on allegations of stealing a car headlight.
Police yesterday said the singer confessed to stealing a headlight from a car of unsuspected motorist in a supermarket parking yard in Kibumbiro Zone, Busega Parish, Wakiso District.
Mukula who doubles as the patron of Uganda Musicians Association says he’s doing what he can to secure Qute Kaye’s freedom.
“This young man with talent got desperate, unemployed and with no source of income in the city. As a patron of Uganda Musicians Association, I have instructed the chairman and others to secure his release. We will rehabilitate him,” Mr Mukula said in a tweet on Friday.
Qute Kaye was arrested on yesterday and later detained at Nateete Police Station after he was allegedly found removing the headlight of the vehicle, registration number UBA 482K, said to be owned by Mr Jasper Musisi.
