Singer Joseph Mayanja known as Jose Chameleone has denounced National Unity Platform (NUP), a Political Party led by the former presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu aka Bobi Wine.
At a party which was organised by President Yoweri Museveni’s brother Michael Nuwagira aka Toyota, Chameleone said he is still a member of the National Resistance Movement (NRM).
“I am still your family, I have never left NRM. If you doubt that, put up your cameras and record me. I am still NRM,” he said, adding that he had his own issues why he had crossed to NUP, “I am now a prodigal son.”
He was handed a brand new range rover and in tandem, he went down on his knees applauding Toyota for the gift offered to him.
On August 13, 2020 joined NUP a few weeks after President Museveni unfollowed him on twitter. He sought a ticket to stand for Kampala Mayoral office however he was denied a ticket on grounds that he was not meeting minimum requirements. The ticket was handed to former Kawempa North MP Latiff Ssebaggala who later bowed out of the race.
Since then, Chameleon has been meeting Museveni’s brother who is also the coordinator of Operation Wealth Creation (OWC) Gen Salim Saleh under the guise of lobbying for the musicians.
