Bebe Cool

*A Ugandan reggae artist who was shot in the legs by local police following an R. Kelly concert has decided to take legal action, reports Uganda’s Daily Monitor.

Bebe Cool, whose real name is Moses Ssali, was one of the opening acts at Kelly’s “I Believe” concert held last Friday (Jan. 29) at the Lugogo Cricket Oval in the country’s capital of Kampala.

According to reports from eyewitnesses, police entered the parking lot of a 24-hour shopping mall where an unidentified couple was found having sex in a car. Witnesses say that a scuffle broke out between police and individuals in the parking lot, which left Bebe Cool with gunshot wounds in his thighs.

Bebe remained in critical condition over the weekend and the singer said he plans to press charges against police officials.

“Of course I’m taking legal action,” he told the newspaper. “I’ve already talked to my lawyers and they are processing necessary documents to see to it that the Uganda police are held responsible.”
