Despite being saved spiritually, local comedian Kapere’s earthly problems seem to be far from over. The renown Ugandan comedian is being hunted by police to answer questions concerning a fraud case in which he received over Shs 1.5m but never delivered the services he was paid for.
Kapere Yokaana is a Ugandan comedian known for his unique looks and acting stints. He has worked with various comedy groups, performed at the big stages in the comedy world and also appeared in different music videos. His fame is something that came not for the normal reasons – his looks, but he has embraced it and made money off it.
Now however, it seems he is looking for a little more money than he already has.
It is reported that Kapere received money worth UGX 1.5 million from an upcoming artiste, identified as Baluku, to help acquire fellow comedian Amooti Omubalanguzi to appear in his video.

Baluku who is also a pastor reported a case to police alleging that he gave UGX 1.5m to Kapere and instructed him to give UGX 1 million to Amooti and use the rest as his commission. He was however shocked when he tried to reach Kapere to no avail. His phones were switched off and he was untraceable.
After reporting the case, Baluku put a reward of about UGX 500,000 to whoever would help to provide information leading to Kapere’s arrest but it seems the comedian planned his disappearance very well and has not been found yet.
