Musician Moses Ssali has in unprecedented twist of events chosen peace over escalating verbal artillery following the Saturday night incident in which he was involved in an altercation with UPDF Captain Robert Namara in Ntinda.
Ssali alias Bebe Cool has since issued a statement explaining his choice of reconciliation.
IN THE SPIRIT OF UBUNTU…
I wish to inform the general public that this morning I met with Mr. Namara and we managed to talk about the incident that happened last Saturday in a parking lot.
Throughout the 27 years of my active music life, I have learnt that when you are wronged, it’s always good to quickly think about forgiveness most especially when there is a will from the other party who wronged you and vise versa, because one day you also seek for forgiveness when you wrong someone.
The last Ramadan, I fasted for only 5 days and for the rest of the fasting period, I performed my fidyah and Kaffara but one thing that came to my mind those five days was to forgive all those who wrong(ed) me.
For that matter, I called my lawyer Mr Sempala of KSMO and asked him to withdraw all my cases from all the different courts of law.
This gave me peace of heart and it’s from this background that I decided reconciliation with afande Namala is the best course of action.
And fortunately he(Namala) even had the same feeling.
It’s the spirit of UBUNTU.
Whatever happened at the parking lot was an accident and we both take responsibility for our reactions that led to an outburst that we believe was uncalled for.
Unfortunately both our jobs require us to be outside in the night and yet a lot happens then.
We met and got to know each other and thanks to Allah we are both alive. I’m always open to reconciliation because its a major key to peace.
We fully regret the panic and inconvenience if any was caused to the public.
Thank you and good luck.
