Ugandan Singer Pius Mayanja known by his stage name Pallaso was attacked, beaten and stabbed in South Africa, in what is termed as a Xenophobic attack.
According to the video posted, the singer reveals that as he was traveling with his friend on Wednesday evening, their car was attacked by unknown people who seemed to be protesting.
Here is a statement by Pallaso;
They beat me up real bad. I fell down, I was stabbed. As I tried to run I was hit by a car. I tried to ask for help from the owner of the car but he just drove off so I kept running with people chasing me with machetes. They pulled my hair and beat me up. Xenophobia is real. I am not sure I’ll leave this place alive because I’m still in hiding.
