I am convinced beyond reasonable doubt that every musician who has ever had a prominent name here in in Uganda has got interests in being a political leader,it is true musicians are a very good way of packaging a party, but who is the driving force for this wave of change from music to Politics?
A month ago, singer joseph Mayanja alias as Jose chameleon came out and was officially inducted as a democratic part member at sharing hall Nsambyain Kampala, where he declared his intension to run for Mayorship come 2021.
And in most of mainstream media, this is the topic for discussion in the arena of music, politics and current affairesThis is a right decision for such a young talented man, but it leaves us with some question; which magic will Chameleon bring to DP? Is he the pesticide that is going to be used fumigate DP Cockroaches, ticks and other insects as the president General of the Democratic Party said? In the daily monitor dated July 10, 19, Mao is quoted saying that, "we are to fumigate DP of the cockroach, ticks and other insects" However, the idea is a chameleon, a watermelon and a pumpkin has got something in common; at least they all have more than one color. If "chameleon" is a chameleon with some identifications of watermelon on his head and the appearance is like that of the pumpkin where should the public get trust to endorse mayorship position to him. It is not all about running all over telling the publics about the new change and claiming its time for change, good leadership start from grassroots. Is it possible and prudent enough for a person who cannot stand on the truth to be entrusted with leadership? If you can claim you were misled to participate in whatever music project you did, how sure are you that they can not do it again
Franz kafka once said"Don't bend; don't water it down; don't try to make it logical; don't edit your own soul according to the fashion. Rather, follow your most intense obsessions mercilessly."
It is very hard for someone out of the blue to bump into something that you have never done, all this is as a result of people power pressure. For a rat to enter into a room where the cat sleep it is as easy as 123 but getting out with happiness may the question that we are yet to answer come 2021
