Death has robbed Uganda’s entertainment industry of yet another amazing soul, singer Richard Kato aka Richie Kats. According to a close friend, Richie Kats perished in a nasty road accident which occurred as he was travelling to Masindi along River Kaffu. The Law Graduate will be remembered for his generous donations in different charity drives and also for his catchy songs like “Nkwagala”, “Mukidongo”, “Zzina”, “I can Fly”, “omukisa” and “Twezinile” among others.
Richie Kats was married to his long-time lover and friend Cisse Kumba, a sister to former Miss Uganda Salma Nassanga,
May his soul rest in Peace.
