Jose Chameleone’s mother, Proscovia Musoke has blamed the National Unity Platform (NUP) for her son’s loss in the recent concluded Kampala Lord Mayoral elections.

While in an interview with BBS TV ‘Roundabout Gossip show’ the ‘Bayunda’ singer’s mum said her son lost the race because NUP denied him a chance to contest on their ticket.

NUP election committee snubbed Chameleone and handed the flag to Latif Ssebagala who later dropped out of the race. Nabilah Nagayi Ssempala was later handed the flag but the incumbent, Ssalongo Erias Lukwago won the election. Nabilah came second, followed by Ragga Dee and Chameleone in 4th.

Mrs. Proscovia Musoke said she felt really annoyed when her son was denied the party’s flag but had nothing to do about it.

Mrs. Proscovia revealed that Jose Chameleone wanted to contest for Kampala Lord Mayor seat long ago but pulled the plug because he was still busy with music.

When Bobi Wine won the Kyadondo East by-election in 2017, Chameleone got inspired and decided to join him in politics.

“Chameleone shared with me, way long ago, his plans of contesting for the Kampala Lord Mayoral race..sometime back when he was still dropping many musical hits. He, however, let it go just like that. But when he saw his brother Bobi Wine making it in the political life, he got inspired and made up his mind to contest for the position”, Mrs Proscovia told BBS TV.
