Shortly after being initiated into the Democratic Party as a member, singer and Lord Mayor hopeful Joseph Mayanja a.k.a Jose Chameleone revealed that he has never belonged the the National Resistance Movement (NRM).

In the 2016 presidential campaigns, Jose Chameleone spearheaded the Tubonga Nawe musical campaign which rallied for support behind president Yoweri Kaguta Museveni.

It was widely perceived that the Leone Island singer belonged to the NRM having been a strong supporter and influencer of the political party’s flag-bearer. Well, it turns out that most of you were wrong.

Chameleone supported Museveni in the ‘Tubonga Nawe’ project.

On Wednesday, just after being confirmed as a party member of the Democratic Party at Sharing Hall Nsambya, the singer revealed that he was paid to offer a service as any other service provider at the NRM campaigns.

I have never been in NRM. I would like to make it clear to everybody that I am a service deliverer and I have been a musician for all these years looking for money.
