Uganda Musician Pallaso survived death by a whisker after being ambushed by a Xenophobic Gang.
Pallaso was traveling with a friend in the late evening to Randfotein when their car was stopped by a gang.
The gang went ahead to harass Pallaso whom they mistook for a Nigerian and blamed for stealing all South African jobs.
Pallaso narrates that he escaped only to be knocked by a car. By the time we came to press, Pallaso was still hiding in a nearby school garage uncertain of the next steps
Jose Chameleon a brother to Pallaso took to twitter to break and confirm the news that Pallaso was indeed attacked and in danger.
