Unconfirmed information we have have received is that veteran musician Jose Chameleone is also putting some of his focus on politics. It is said that he is eyeing the position of Mayor of Kampala city.
Despite the fact that Chameleone has not yet come out to confirm or deny this information, his close sources have confirmed that he will be contesting in the next general elections come 2021.
Apparently, Erias Lukwago is the incumbent mayor having served for two terms so far and it is highly believed that he will contest again come 2021. However, if the information we received is anything to go by, Chameleone is set to give Lukwago a run for his money.
If at all he is serious, the ‘Leone Island’ boss will be among the entertainers who have participated in politics after Judith Babirye, Kato Lubwama and Bobi Wine.
There are other local musicians who have also shown interest in different political positions like Geofrey Lutaaya, Dr Hilderman, Ronald Mayinja and Mickie Wine among others.
With Chameleone’s changing characters, everything is possible. At one time, he converted to Islam and named himself Gadafi before returning to Christianity a few days later. We will not surprised if he stands for Kampala Mayor in 2021
