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.
