Leone Island singing doctor Joseph Mayanja aka Jose Chameleone on Tuesday took an oath never to leave the opposition Democratic Party [DP].
“I’m a Ugandan with rights to identify with the oppressed or the oppressor. I have decided to identify with the oppressed,” Chameleone told press at DP headquarters in Kampala.
The singer clarified on accusations by Mukono Municipality MP Betty Nambooze that Chameleone is a spy planted the ruling National Resistance Movement [NRM].
“I’m not a mole in DP. I once took money and it is nowhere to be seen,” Chameleone explained.
“I’m not against Bobi Wine,” Chameleone further came clean, just days after he met Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi at his Magere home.
Chameleone concurred with Bobi Wine that President Museveni’s regime “has denied us power and we must be together and avoid mediocrity if we are to achieve the change we want”.
At the conference attended by Abed Bwanika, Micheal Mabikke, John Mary Ssebuwuufu, and DP spokesperson Kenneth Kakande, Chameleone called for unity.
“We must be unified, I am standing here as a Ugandan who wishes to see a better nation, we want to achieve for the nation, not our bellies.”
He went on: “Museveni’s government should come to an end. It has run out of ideas, lost a point.”
The singer also used the opportunity to declare a campaign for mass registration at Katwe where he pledged Shs1m to buy tickets for the first 500 enthusiasts who will join DP.
“I just want to get rid of the bad rulers. Museveni’s government should come to an end with all the people he is serving with. Let them surrender power to us so we rediscover ourselves, our nation,” he noted.
