Jose Chameleone has penned down a letter to Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni. The singer has begged the President to release Bobi Wine, a Ugandan singer cum politician who was arrested early this week.
His arrest came after the Nakumiss hitmaker reported that his driver was shot dead by police inside his car. The Kyadondo East legislator said in a tweet that they were in Arua for campaigns at the time of the shooting.
Chameleone’s plea to Museveni reads as follows:
Letter to His Excellency President of the republic of Uganda.
Seeking appointment or going through protocol will not deliver my urgent letter to you.
Right now I hope we all rather can let it be a temporary political mishap per what happened in the district of Arua on Monday. Unfortunately it left you car Vandalized,Many of us inconvenienced – A soul lost, And another Ugandan,brother, Friend,Fellow singer Honourable as appointed by Kyadondo east-Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine and many counterparts in an unfortunate situation. Honourable Kyagulanyi has always collaborated with me and all of us society to free Uganda from
Foreign sounds,Sell our culture beyond borders through our capital ability – Music.
Bobi Wine has over time exhibited his leadership admiration. Just Like any young ambitious man, he has treaded a path of aggressiveness.
Your excellency,Our brother, Your son Bobi Wine could have gone wrong on execution of some of his ideologies. That’s a challenge .
As head of state and forefather, It’s a great one too to lead us in example of forgiveness and reconciliation as that is one of the prime problems that have hindered our society.We are so unforgiving.
I as a son of this nation on behalf of the slogan. “For God and my Country” With all honour beg you the President to symbolise forgiveness in such a time. We can all wrong but better the forgiver.Mr President, You are a Father,Parent and always forgiving one.We shall all remain calm and be hopeful that the coming developments will see us all live harmoniously and have a peaceful country henceforth.
Dialogue is the answer
For God and my country

Late last year, his house was destroyed by an explosive. He said that grenades were thrown into his house and it’s not the first time such an incident had happened.
GRENADES have for the second time in two days been thrown at my house and exploded. Property damaged and no one hurt! But what kind of country are we now living in?
I had decided to ignore the blasts and these threats, but it seems they are now getting real.
Let me announce to the whole world that these past days I have been receiving death threats on an almost daily basis. I have also been advised by some friends who know more than I know that I should be very careful what I eat or drink, how I drive and from where, whom I meet, even who touches me while I go to Parliament. Apparently something could be done to me during the kind of scuffle that happened when state agents invaded the Parliamentary chamber!
He added “Reason? Opposing the removal of age limits in the Constitution! Anonymous calls targeting not only me but my family as well. I have been told that ‘if I don’t leave that thing a lone, I will just be terminated or disabled.’
These are cowardly acts which must be condemned by all people of good conscience. We are not involved in war. We are just citizens who are interested in a good country for ourselves and the generations to come. WE SHALL NOT BE INTIMIDATED. Let them know that NOTHING can stop an idea whose time has come. If you kill one me, perhaps a thousand more will rise up. The world is watching!”
