Kampala: Tension is already mounting between Kampala Lord Mayor Elias Lukwago and singer Joseph Mayanja aka Chameleone, ever since the latter declared his intentions to oust the former come 2021 general polls. Our Spies have learnt that the beef between the two men has been raging on secretly until it manifested publicly on Tuesday, outside Luzira Prisons.
It all started when Mukono MP Betty Nambooze, Francis Zaake, Lukwago and several others went to Luzira prisons to visit Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine, but were denied access to him. As Lukwago, Nambooze and other politicians pleaded with the prisons warders to allow them in, there came Chameleone, with his brother Pius Mayanaja aka Pallaso and others who had gone to visit Bobi Wine, but were also denied entry to the prisons complex. Thereafter, Chameleone decided to say ‘hello’ to some of the politicians who were standing nearby.
He greeted one by one, starting with Nambooze, then others, but when he reached Lukwago, the Lord Mayor refused to shake Chameleone’s hand. The singer insisted on greeting Lukwago but the latter snubbed him until Chameleone moved away. However, Lukwago’s action shocked many people who were at outside the Luzira prisons gates, because they didn’t expect him to publicly express his dislike for Chameleone
