Leon Island boss and super star singer Joseph Mayanja alias Dr.Jose Chameleone has pleaded with president Yoweri Kaguta Museveni to release and forgive Kyadondo East legislator Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine who is currently on treason charges.
Bobi Wine and newly elected Arua Municipality Member of parliament Kassiano Wadri were arrested on Monday in Arua town by security forces on allegations that they attacked the Presidential convoy and Vandalized one of the presidential convoy vehicles.
Later on Wednesday the government made a statement that the arrested suspects are to be court martialed.
After reading the charges against Bobi Wine which are capital in nature, Chameleon has now asked President Museveni to extend his ‘forgiving hand’ to Bobi Wine, because he is his brother with whom he fought a long war to put Ugandan music industry on the map and promoted Uganda to the outside world.
Below is Chameleon’s full statement;
Letter to His Excellency President of the republic of Uganda.
Seeking an appointment or going through protocol will not deliver my urgent letter to you.
Right now I hope we all rather can let it be a temporary political mishap as per what happened in the district of Arua on Monday. Unfortunately it left your car Vandalized, many of us inconvenienced – a soul lost, And another Ugandan, brother, Friend, Fellow singer Honourable as appointed by Kyadondo East-Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine and many counterparts in an unfortunate situation.
Honourable Kyagulanyi has always collaborated with me and all of us society to free Uganda from Foreign sounds, sold our culture beyond borders through our capital ability – Music.
Bobi Wine has over time exhibited his leadership admiration. Just like any young ambitious man, he has treaded a path of aggressiveness.
Your excellency, Our brother, Your son Bobi Wine could have gone wrong on execution of some of his ideologies. That’s a challenge.
As head of state and forefather, It’s a great one too to lead us in example of forgiveness and reconciliation as that is one of the prime problems that have hindered our society. We are so unforgiving.
I as a son of this nation on behalf of the slogan-“For God and my Country” With all honour beg you the President to symbolise forgiveness in such a time. We can all wrong but better the forgiver, Mr President. You are a Father, Parent and always forgiving one. We shall all remain calm and be hopeful that the coming developments will see us all live harmoniously and have a peaceful country henceforth.
Dialogue is the answer
For God and my country,
