KAMPALA. Singer Joseph Mayanja alias Jose Chameleone has begged President Yoweri Museveni to forgive his fellow singer and Kyandondo East Member of Parliament Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu (Bobi Wine) over what transpired in Arua Municipality on Monday.
In a post shared on his social media pages, Chameleone says that although Bobi Wine could have crossed his line, the President should pardon him.
On Wednesday, in his letter about the Arua fracas, President Museveni decried the violent acts of Bobi Wine and other opposition members in Arua Municipality on Monday evening.
In the violence, one of President Museveni's vehicles was attacked and the back window smashed by suspected members of the opposition.
“It is a big shame to have such confused people who want to use violence to intimidate Ugandans. Nobody has a right to intimidate any Ugandan by word or action,” the President said on Wednesday.

Honourable Kyagulanyi has always collaborated with me and all of us in 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.
