Police has Tuesday arrested Leone Island singing doctor Joseph Mayanja aka Jose Chameleone while leaving Democratic Party headquarters in Kampala.
Chameleone had just finished addressing press on his political journey which he is walking in green DP colours.
Chameleone was recently named the party chief mobiliser after he declared his intention to contest for Kampala mayoral seat.
During the press conference, he told journalists how he became a Chameleone owing to an explanation from his mother saying “a chameleon walks in all colours and slowly but surely”.
He explained that joining the ruling National Resistance Movement [NRM] was because he wanted the money. That is why he took part in Tubonga Nawe project.
Chameleone then called upon young people to join him in liberating the country from the 32 years of President Museveni’s rule.
The singer who is taking on Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago Kampala mayoral office come 2021 elections, tried to hold a procession across the city after the press conference.
He was escorted by his brother Douglas Mayanja aka Weasel.
Police grabbed him and rushed him to Central Police Station where he was briefly detained.
According to reports, Chameleone apologised to police and was released.
He was later driven to Metropole Hotel near his DNA Lounge in Kololo.
