Just when we thought local musician, more about mind http://chuntaritos.com/wp-content/plugins/all-in-one-seo-pack/aioseop_class.php Red Banton had learnt his lesson the last time he was arrested for drunk-walking, stomach http://cirgroup.com/typo3conf/ext/sr_freecap/pi1/captcha.php he was on the wrong side of the law’s arm again on Tuesday, 30th as he was arrested on Entebbe Road for drunk driving.
Red Banton who is an almost forgotten musician was arrested and taken Katwe Police Station where he is facing charges of reckless driving, driving under the influence of alcohol, driving a motor vehicle that is in a poor condition and driving without a permit.
A traffic officer says he earlier saw Red Banton recklessly driving along the road at a terrific speed almost knocking one of the vehicles coming from Kampala and another traffic officer.
According to the report made at police, Red Banton admitted to have been drinking since Monday night but said that he did not intend to put any road users’ lives at risk.
For a musician that was one of the greatest in the country in the 90’s and early 2000’s, we all know that life has not been easy on Red Banton especially since he is not doing well musically and financially and this might be the reason he buries his problems in alcohol.
Red Banton boasts of songs like ‘Nonya Money’, ‘Nemeddewo’ and ‘Abakyala’.
