Uganda: Qute Kaye Arrested for Stealing Car Headlights

Kampala — After giving his life to Christ last year at the famous 77 Days of Glory, Jinkese singer Qute Kaye is back in our faces. This time, not for the right reasons: Kaye was reportedly caught stealing headlights from a car in Busega, Rubaga Division in Kampala.

It is reported that Kaye was arrested after residents who made an alarm, attracting crowds, spotted him.

Kampala metropolitan spokesperson Luke Oweyesigire however said that he had not yet confirmed the incident.

"The people I'm supposed to crosscheck with about Cute Kaye's arrest are in a meeting. I'll confirm to you later," said Oweyesigire when contacted by Sqoop.

Kaye broke onto the music scene in 2007, with his first album Ginkese, which took the airwaves and nightclubs by storm.

He is billed to songs such as Ginkese, Gwendota, Njagala Omuwala, Osindise Asitamye featuring Iryn Namubiru, and Gyetwasokela with Priscilla Kalibala, among other songs.

However, ever since he disappeared from the music scene, Kaye's life has been one that no person would wish for.

In May 2013, Kaye was announced dead by some radio stations, after he had been bedridden for a while. He however came out to clear the rumours and said he was still alive.
