Opinion: I don’t trust Chameleone’s mission in the NUP…

Joseph Mayanja aka Jose Chameleone only last year left the National Resistance Movement (NRM). The man of the President. A man who has participated in rallies and singed songs for the regime for years. Suddenly last year in early July 2019 joined the Democratic Party and Mao gave him the role of Chief Mobilizer.

Today, he was announced as the Lord Mayoral Aspirant for Kampala for the National Unity Platform. Which means that Chameleone have within a year gone from the NRM to DP and final destination NUP.

Gone all red from yellow and for a hot minute green. This man is doing everything. Maybe by the time of 2021 he will try to join FDC. Just so he can say he was blue as well. No, I am just kidding. He will not go there, as he will not challenge incumbent Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago. Who has also left the DP for another party.

For Bobi Wine this isn’t a victory. This here isn’t something to celebrate. Even if Bobi Wine is cheering and smiling as he welcomes Chameleone to the team. By all means, this yet another back handed slap at the DP. However, this man is just trying to find a flag to be relevant under. Chameleone doesn’t seem legit.

Nothing about his time in politics seems sincere. He is now red on the outside, but I still believe his yellow on the inside. Sort of like a mango. He should sing songs for Uganda Telecom and Splash. Not be a Lord Mayoral candidate. I cannot think of anything he stands for or cares about. Unless, leeching on whatever that is popping at any given moment.

This man has today gotten an easier ride without really having to struggle to do so. His just getting the umbrella, but without any real cost. Not like Chameleone have really invested time or energy in the DP. It is like everything he does is a publicity stunt.

Chameleone got to go head to head with Lukwago now. The others will not be in the same bracket. His the Ragga Dee of NUP. I don’t see how they will beat the two times Lord Mayor and former MP.

So, he wants to recreate himself again. This time in the vision of NUP and be under the wings of Bobi Wine. Because, he understands that there is little to no wheels helping the road ahead in DP. This is why he fled the scene and became an NUPer today. However, it is not a winning team this here.

Chameleone does this only for selfish reasons. I don’t see this a viable entry. His just using the flag, the party and the swagger of Bobi Wine. This is all just a ploy for him. Shopping the best opposition house to run on. Not because he believes in it, but because it helps his candidacy.

Chameleone have changed his colours so easily. Gone from yellow last year into green. This year gone from green to red. Who wonders what he does next, but don’t expect a magic wand or something unique.

This man will sound like everyone around him. Do what he can to fit in and be like them. However, I doubt he is, because of all the years he was on the payroll of the regime. This is just a another publicity stunt and his hoping the naive is flying high on it. However, I doubt this will help him much against Lukwago, except giving him some sort of credibility as an opposition candidate. Still, people like me doesn’t believe the man. Peace.

Opinion: Lord Mayoral canddiate Chameleone [want to act green and red, but smells yellow]

Dr Jose Chameleone aka Joseph Mayanja are officially nominating himself as the candidate for Lord Mayor of Kampala on a People Power ticket. Surely combined with the Democratic Party, where his a member and been a National Mobilizer.

I don’t know if I can trust Chameleone. His been loyal to the President and campaigned for the National Resistance Movement (NRM) for years. Yes, a man can switch and change his allegiance. That is all natural, but don’t expect it to not follow him blindly either.

He wants to act all opposition, even picking the safe bet of being both part of the Democratic Party under the guidance of Mao and ticket on People Power Movement with the boost of Bobi Wine. It seems like a positive political bingo. Getting both the facade of a political party and support of the growing movement around Bobi Wine.

Chameleone might be able to trick a few as an entertainer, but I have hard time seeing him as a trusted candidate. He cannot even pay taxes on his cars. The man has plenty of times forgotten or deliberately not paid taxes on his SUVs. That has been an issue since 2012. If it is a Cadillac or Toyota. The musician have struggled to pay for it.

His possibly a legend in the field of music. A pop star and a man with many top singles. Chameleone have conquered that field, but as a politician his a start-up. With his past love and association with the NRM. I have question his sudden character of the opposition.

That his both with Mao and Bobi Wine shows that he wants to finesse this game. I don’t doubt him. Last campaign and after the General Election in 2016. The man defended the President, the whole “Tubonga Naawe” song and sends his congratulatory message after the rigged enterprise.

It is like the man now wants to forget all this. That the drive for campaign-money and support of the State House.

It is weird how quickly he went from being Yellow to Red or Green for that matter. That it was that simple. Chameleone just switched camps all over night. It is hard to figure out.

Now he wants to become the Lord Mayor of Kampala. Challenge the two term incumbent Erias Lukwago who went from DP to create his own party. Chameleone is overtaking the slot of Lukwago in the DP. Also, making himself more relevant by joining the PP. There is no other way to look at it. If he had done this for 2016, Jose would have used the TDA for his benefit.

I have little faith in Chameleone. Until he proves me otherwise, but I don’t want to be naive. Believe his words and “sudden” change of heart. It just seems like his put there to make the race harder for Lukwago. As the NRM cannot field any sensible candidate in Kampala. Peace.

Opinion: Sorry Jose, I’m not buying it!

“This is a new crusade. They branded us thugs but it was because we trusted them and they left us poor. In 1986, I was like 6 or 7 years when they took over and welcomed him(Museveni) as our darling but has let us down and people have lost hope in the country” (…) “I am in this struggle with you and not because of any financial gains. If I wanted money I would have gone to board the bus (NRM) because they have money. I am here to tell you that I am one of you.” (Jose Chameleone, 16.07.2019)

Even as Joseph Mayanja aka Jose Chameleone held his first Presser as the National Mobilizer in the Democrat Party Block or DP Block today. He said this scripted words, as he later been arrested by the authorities, first held at Kampala Metropolitan Police Station to be transferred to his own bar.

The real dying question is about his loyalty. Because, this man seemingly has no message, no sort of drive or political stance. The only things that pops up, is the money question. So therefore, I cannot buy his defiance against the President. A man that has paid this man for ages, years and even through his whole career. Not only the campaign song of 2016. No, long, long time, way back when.

Therefore, the whole opposition thing and becoming a standing principled lad in contrast to the President. I have a hard time believing. It doesn’t really matter, what words or play he puts forward. If it is a skit or song, its still seem like a façade. Not the real deal.

We know his not the real deal, as the newsflashes are coming as I am writing. He apologized to the authorities about his remarks. That President Museveni let the people down. He was sincerely apologetic and didn’t mean it. That is why they let him off the hook.

This shows what sort of man he is, a weasel, no a Chameleon in true fashion. He switches depending on what he needs to do. His nickname is his traits and that’s why I cannot trust this man.

I am not buying it, that Jose is a REAL OPPOSITION. No his a fake and fraud, his playing for the guards, hoping some naïve idiots takes the bait. That is who he is. Nothing else. It is that simple. Peace.

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.

Chameleone launching his Mayoral Aspiration: A man of the President!

The problems I have are more than the 400 million the President gave to artists, I’m paying mortgages…I also have a right to do what I want, I know Besigye, I know Amama but my man is Museveni”Jose Chameleone 24th October 2015

Musician Joseph Mayanja alias Jose Chameleone has for years performed for National Resistance Movement functions and campaigns. Chameleone done so since at least 2010 in Kabale, when he did it for the NRM Flag-bearer. He was also a major part of the musical acts who performed on concerts before the Presidential Campaigns of 2015 and in 2016. Therefore, by his actions, we know his a loyalist of the President.

Why do I say this, well, he launched his Mayoral Candidacy in Kampala for the upcoming General Election 2021. The NRM tried the same tactic with Gen. Salim Selah’s friend Daniel Kazibwe aka Ragga Dee, who ran as Mayoral Candidate in the General Election in 2016. So, Kampala have seen this sort of actions done by the NRM. This is a populist way of trying to cover all bases.

However, Chameleone have been a Museveni for so long. He sent him a congratulation message after the General Election in 2016. In this manner, his been similar to Bebe Cool, whose is also a vocal supporter of the President. So, if you think Jose will sway away from this, it is just for show. Because, his been eating the NRM Money and campaigned for the President for so long. Even said his been humbled by greeting the President. Therefore, don’t expect him to deep digging into the politics, as his been paid millions of shillings to perform for the ruling regime.

Even if Chameleone runs as an Independent, his is NRM in action and spirit. This should be known, even if the launch of yesterday are not proving a manifesto or any sort of pledge of what he wants to do. Surely, he just want to be a populist major for the ruling party, instead of someone whose representing the citizens of Kampala like Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago. That is why the NRM needs candidates like this to even try to challenge him.

Don’t expect Captain Francis Babu to repeat failure again. Maybe, even Ragga Dee want to challenge Chameleone. But we don’t know, if the NRM Primaries going to down before the upcoming elections.

Don’t expect the likes of me to celebrate a candidate like this. His a screwed and loyal ways to the President. Chameleone will be a selfish leader, whose there only for own gains. That is why his defending his part of the previous campaign, as a monetary gain to earn a living. While, he is initially a big supporter of Museveni. I haven’t heard him or seen any writing confessing to think otherwise.

If, you support this man, your indirectly supporting the President. That is an FYI. Peace.

Lukwago Responds To Museveni (Youtube-Clip)

The Thirteen Day of Presidential Rallies in Uganda + New Pledges from the Government..

Janet M7 in Mbarara 21.11.15

Today has been a good day a Saturday with quotes and actions from the trails. There been some serious hazard of actions from the ruling party of NRM. But hat is understandable, that is the only thing they know. That’s why the others have to campaign with defiance and strength to overcome the ruling party. There is heavy campaigning. Though not reports from them all. Like the smaller candidates.

I got the most notable from the trio of Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, Dr. Kizza Besigye and Amama Mbabazi. Not squat on the rest today.  

Erias Lukwago: “It’s now interesting that 95% of KCCA NRM councilors have not returned at the primaries”.

NRM vice chairperson eastern region Capt. Micheal Mukula said this recently: “Jinja town will never be granted a city status while still in the hands of the opposition”.

Ibrahim Nganda Ssemujju – “I have a feeling that if Kayihura doesn’t like you; you may not be announced winner”.

Dr. Kizza Besigye on the trail: “We spent $760m to buy 6 fighter jets. We can get $360m to buy laptop for secondary students”.

Gen. Mugisha Muntu: “I don’t understand why the most marginalized districts overwhelmingly vote for NRM”.

Olara Otunu: “Museveni has used the dived and rule policy”.

Amama Mbarara 21.11.15

In Mbarara where Go-Forward and Amama Mbabazi are having an rally later today on this Saturday. The Police wasn’t happy about that so they has jailed two hundred (200) boda-boda drives, motorcycle taxis, so that there would be less transport from town to the venue where the former PM where holding his Presidential Rally later today. Also the day before the Campaign rally of Amama Mbabazi their posters was taken down and changed for the NRM-Posters. Surely this is clean business as usual for the NRM-Regime. After the rally and little or no pay from the promised chiefs to shun the Go-Forward Rally; they have no been running and chasing the local RDC Office “demanding payment for their service”.

M7 21.11.15

While in Kakyeka at the Total there the ones who was travelling and refueling their motorcycles was paid by the NRM for fuel, but many just entered the Total with NRM-posters, but when they left the Gas-Station they just threw the NRM-Poster away.

In Bushenyi there been groups and teams who has had their duty to take down campaign material and posters of Go-Forward and Amama Mbabazi posters in the town. They have even been caught on tape explaining the plans on how to do so. And that is fair game?

In Mitooma District NRM Supporters was disrupting the event and venue for the Go-Forward and Amama Mbabazi. That was because this district was a Museveni District.

Next weeks planned Presidential Rally for the Go-Forward team at the Lira Golf Grounds. They have now been sealed down with Iron sheets. So that when the other candidates will have a venue in town they have to arrange it at smaller spots like Mayors Ground.

Bududa Manafwa KB 21.11.15

In Bududa there were 104 NRM members who deflected after the rally to the FDC camp.

Letter from Go-Forward to ICC:

UPC Drama:

UPC leaders in Acholi have shunned the Jimmy Akena over the NRM agreement and alliance.

Bududa/Manafwa (Mwanyaala Naabi):

The health services system under FDC led Government will consider the citizen as the central focus and include a complete package: treatment, diagnosis, prevention, education, research and outreach. It must take into account the unique roles of women and the burden they shoulder in caring for the sick in our households and community. ‪#‎WesigeBesigye

Aftermath:

So there we go; another day done and the trail continue at high speed. The Police is very active still and showing its face yet again. For those who wondered if the police would be a part of this election? They are and the one interesting are the reactions to the deal between NRM and UPC. How the leaders of UPC respond. Hope you enjoyed. There will be more to follow. We have the rest of November, December, January and parts of February. There will be more and more actions from the ones involved. It is just a matter of time before the Public Order Management Act gets into action! Peace.
