Kampala: In a social media post (Facebook) by the Kyadondo East Legislator Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Alias Bobi Wine said, met with his fellow Musician Joseph Mayanja alias Jose Chameleone at his home in Magere to discuss matters of national importance.
According to the Legislator, the two discussed a wide range of issues from reminiscing the old times, the current state of the music industry but most importantly the future of Uganda.
“Yesterday evening, it was nice hosting my friend and fellow artiste Jose Chameleon at my home in Magere after so many years. We discussed a wide range of issues from reminiscing the old times, the current state of the music industry but most importantly the future of our country Uganda. Jose informed me that a few months ago, he made a decision to join People Power, after realizing that President Museveni is just a user who has nothing left to offer to our country,” reads part of the Post.
Kyagulanyi said Chameleone explained how he was singing praises for Museveni just for money but not out of conviction.
“He repeated to me that he was singing praises for Museveni just for the money but not out of conviction and that he now agrees with us that Museveni and his regime has destroyed our country and it’s time for us as a generation to redeem it,” Kyagulanyi wrote.
He added that (Chameleone) apologized for having taken long to reach out the People Power leadership.
However, he advised Chameleone to stand firm by his words and prove to people still doubting by actions. Wine added that Chameleone’s joining to the Opposition was a success against fighting the dictatorship of president Museveni.
“I assured him that if he really means his words this time, then it would be good news for the struggle against dictatorship I told my brother that I was glad he had made such a great decision to be on the side of the people, and he would definitely be a great addition to the forces of change. He was also apologetic for taking so long to reach out to the leadership of PeoplePower. We both agreed that his actions moving forward will make the difference,” Bobi said.
“He also told me about his political ambitions and I told him that ultimately, the decision lies with the people. I advised my brother that he has some work to do to convince the population that he is truly on their side- both in words and actions. If his actions hasten the fall of the dictatorship, then he is a true comrade of ours. If his actions on the other hand delay or derail the mission, then the population will judge him as such, ultimately, my advice to him was that the people of Uganda will be watching him very closely these coming days and months. They will be watching his every action, and his every word. They will tell if he is for them or against them. This is the same message I pass on to all comrades who join our ranks from the NRM.” Reads in Bobi Wine’s Post.
Dr. Jose Chameleon and his brother Pallaso real names Pius Mayanja on June 27 officially joined the Democratic Party (DP) ahead of 2021 election.
