While Jose Chameleone’s intentions to lead Kampala as Lord Mayor after 2021 have just been known to the public, the singer and now cum Lord Mayor contestant had earlier last year started plans to make the city a better place.

We have learnt that the singer last year while on his tour in Europe bumped into WakaWaka CEO Maurits Groen and in their talks engaged him into venturing into rural parts of Uganda. “Chameleone last year asked Maurits Groen through his intiative to light up the world with Solar to provide same aid to rural part of Uganda.” A source told us. It should be noted this was before he held any intentions to stand as Lord Mayor come 2021.

With his 2021 intentions clear now, Jose Chameleone is said to have successfully lured Maurits Groen into shipping about 250,000 solar panels to Uganda and intends to distribute them to needing Ugandans.

If this is Chameleone’s plan, isn’t a leader who looks further than depending on own country economy a better one? Chameleone seems to be a leader of opportunities
