In his bid to advocate for his brother Jose Chameleone’s political freedoms, singer Pallaso has contextualized the idea of how Ugandans have greatly individualized the struggle for change.
Since announcing that he was taking on politics and leadership seriously, Joseph Mayanja a.k.a Chameleone has faced criticism which worsened when he revealed that he had fully joined the Democratic Party (DP).
Most of the criticism is based on the fact that he is formerly an ardent supporter of the National Resistance Movement – the ruling party whose campaigns the singer spearheaded with the Tubonga Nawe project in 2015.
Chameleone is therefore looked at as an unreliable person even by some of the top members of DP. Some claim that he received a lot of money from the president and he has to pay for his former sins.
Pallaso believes that what is being done by people partaking the same struggle for change, in blaming particular politicians for their past, is really wrong because the struggle should belong to them as a united force.
In comparison, Pallaso reveals that the Uganda Cranes received a lot of money from the president after their AFCON 2019 campaign but they weren’t blamed yet Chameleone continues to be crucified for a similar gesture.
He went on to reveal how every talent that stands out represents Uganda as a nation and people should happy to watch and support it, regardless of their political stance.
Every talent that stands out represents Uganda as a nation and people are happy to watch it. Soccer, music, runners – we are all talents.Pallaso
