Opinion: Chameleone isn’t green, his heart bleads yellow!
Don’t let Joseph Mayanja aka Jose Chameleone fool you by being the endorsed by the Democratic Party for the Lord Mayoral Candidate in Kampala for the General Election in 2021. His still the yellow fellow with loyalty to President Yoweri Museveni. This man is not an opposition guy, the guy who stood by and supported Museveni all these years. This musician, who have been eating of the campaigns and the support of the Presidency. He would never give that up.
That is why his just using the DP together with his brother Pallaso to have another flag behind him. Even if he is a loyalist to Museveni, which he has shown in the past. I do not believe he will ever go away from that, since he for over a decade stood by the Presient.
That is why it’s a front with the People Power fatigue and the DP Green flag-bearer behind him. The supposed feud with Ragga Dee, the previous candidate for Lord Mayor for the NRM. Which is just fitting, as two musicians possibly stands for the seat to beat twice incumbent Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago, the People’s Government representative and former DP candidate too.
That is why Chameleone picks the DP, because they have won the seat before, not the NRM. Who haven’t had a shot in a while. His not stupid, even if his bar get closed for lacking funds, he is not paying his taxes on time and so forth. Still, his smart enough to now the gist and have the team behind him.
That is why Jose picks the DP. Not because his against the NRM or the President. No, he picks them to suck enough people in and get a machinery behind him. Even if that is Bwanika and few other misfits, they will still be better, than having the same surroundings as Ragga Dee had. Who couldn’t push him through the finish line last time in 2016!
That is why the musician turned politician have picked the DP. Not because he believes in the DP, but because he wants the NRM-lite behind him. He knew the UPC have nothing in Kampala. He knows the UFA and the Farmers Party isn’t really there, not even JEEMA. That is why he picked membership and endorsement from the DP.
Anyone else can be fooled by Chameleone, but you shouldn’t, his just trying to fit the bill that Ragga Dee couldn’t last time. Jose trying to be smart and use other paths to glory. The DP is just an engine, as he will not be compromised and act like his departed from the NRM. When, he really always have been a supporter and been someone behind the President. Because, by doing so, he knows that pays-off.
He can lie, he can play on stage, he can use the microphone and entertain, he can even write fantastic songs, but he cannot deceive the masses. He is the Chameleon, who tries to be green, but we all know deep in his heart, he is a yellow mellow fellow. Peace.
