It is no longer news that veteran singer Jose Chameleone real names Joseph Mayanja joined politics but what is newsworthy is that his young brother Pius Mayanja alias Pallaso is also planning to contest for the position of Member of Parliament for Kawempe South constituency.
That aside, the brothers have also chosen the political party they will be representing come the 2021 Uganda general elections
Chameleone and Pallaso officially joined Uganda’s oldest political party Democratic Party (DP) and they were officially unveiled on Wednesday at the party headquarters in Kampala.
“Joseph Mayanja aka Dr. Jose Chameleone and his brother Pius Mayanja aka Pallaso have officially joined the Democratic Party.” Read part of the statement on the official DP social media platforms. “Jose Chameleone coming for Kampala Lord Mayor then Palaso MP Kawempe South.” The statement further read.
Chameleone’s visit is however not the first because a few weeks ago he was at DP offices despite the fact that he was seen wearing People Power beret.
“I wanted to come as an independent candidate because I didn’t want to affiliate myself to one party but when I visited DP in Jinja, I was shown so much love and from that time, I decided to be a Democratic Party candidate. I’m coming on DP ticket and card,” Chameleone stated while addressing the party members.
Pallaso and Chameleone join Bobi Wine and his brothers who are also into politics besides music.
