Ugandan musician Jose Chameleone earlier this month revealed that he will use some of the proceeds collected from the ‘One Million, One Man’ concert to construct bore holes in Karamoja in order to improve the accessibility of clean water within the region.
The Valu Valu singer said: “There are areas and people that are always forgotten and not cared for in this country. Karamoja is an example of such places. These people die, due to lack of good and clean water for consumption. It is my role as a public figure to try and make a difference. We are doing it for our brothers and sisters in Karamoja.”
After showing his philanthropic side, Chameleone recently left several youths and cadets ecstatic at the Masindi Police School. The singer who lectured them about the issues of youth empowerment and talent development, was invited by the Inspector General of Uganda Police to pass on the knowledge he has acquired over the years.
The youths and cadets were excited to be in the presence of the ‘Wale Wale’ star as they posed for selfies while others opted to go for hugs.
A very overwhelmed Chameleone took to Facebook to share his enthusiasm:
“It’s been a long time since I had a Wednesday like the 27th August 2014.I was honored to be invited by the Inspector General of Uganda Police to lecture my fellow Countrymen, Youths and Cadets in Masindi Police School on issues about youth empowerment and talent development.”
“The smiles and simplicity when I arrived made it warm enough for me to interact and share easily! Today this reminded me that finally our MUSIC has impacted our community and world over.”
“It’s time we take charge as tools of community development after all Charity begins at home,” Chameleone concluded.
Chameleone is set to travel to Burundi today.
