Musician Joseph Mayanja aka Chameleone has reportedly refused Bobi Wine's call to stand as the Member of Parliament for Mityana North constituency. Chameleone's ancestral home is located in Mityana and he owns several acres of land in the same district.
For weeks now, the National Unity Platform(NUP) leader has been convincing the singer to go for a parliamentary seat instead for running as Kampala Lord Mayor.
Chameleone believes he has already put up roots in the city, he can unseat Erias Lukwago.
Insiders at Kamwokya based party say Bobi Wine is not willing to support anyone who wants to compete with Lukwago because they have same interests.
"They have failed to come to an agreement so far.Chameleone is refusing to go for Mityana North constituency yet Bobi Wine doesn't want to support anyone who runs against Erias Lukwago," insiders claimed.
Reports say talks are still ongoing between Chameleone and Bobi Wine.
