KAMPALA – Ugandan musician Jose Chameleone real name Joseph Mayanja has on Saturday 15 scoffed at the government over its unending fake promises.
The Leone Island boss says Uganda’s leaders have for long promised to develop the country to the level of other countries but nothing is done to achieve this.
“We are sick and tired of promises that we are going to reach the standards of other worlds yet the journey to that has never been started,” said the artiste who is looking forward to standing for Kampala Mayorship come 2021.
He asked for unity as one of the achieve the country’s needs.
“With the might of God we have been blessed to see things in unison and that’s the way we are going achieve united destiny.”
Chameleone who is currently in Bahrain for music show says most of the countries he has travelled to are far better than Uganda with developed cities.
“By God’s blessing, I have been all over the world and witnessed how other Cities and Countries excel. The question is when are we going to get there?,” he wondered.
“Let’s not only live together but work together for the best we all deserve,” he urged, adding that “We are a great generation that is bound to make way for a greater generation.”
The 40-year-old singer came out a few months back and revealed that he’s joining politics. He has publically expressed interest in becoming Kampala’s next Lord Mayor in the forthcoming elections in 2021.
However, this has been discouraged by some people including his father and the National Vice Chairman NRM Eastern who is also Chairman Pan African Movement and pilot Capt Mike Mukula who advised him to leave politics alone for it will run him broke.
Mr. Mukula said that basing on his experience, politics will erode the singer’s financial base and could ruin his entertainment career.
“My advice to my good friend chameleon is to go slow on politics; it will erode your financial base and could ruin your entertainment career. Don’t say I didn’t advise you, take or leave it experience has taught me,” warned Capt Mukula through twitter.
However, Mr. Mayanja who is looking forward to unseating Erias Lukwago for Kampala Lord Mayorship come 2021 replied that he fears nothing but to continue with what he called ‘paving the way.’
“Thank you my great Friend, “Great men pave way for greater men” now that they didn’t we shall pave our own way and for the greater men after us,” he replied.
