It is very disappointing that I did not get the NUP card. When Bobi Wine invited me to join the party I thought that I would have the umbrella over me.
I am still NUP and a bit of DP but what is important is that I am on the people’s side.Jose Chameleone
He furthermore explained how he is aware that he is contesting for the Kampala top seat with other artistes before he revealed how he is confident that he will triumph over them.

I know that I am standing against other artistes for the seat of Kampala Lord Mayor. However, what is their success story? What did they add to the music industry before they joined politics? I believe I got them beat at that.Jose Chameleone
