Veteran singer Joseph Mayanja popularly known as Dr. Jose Chameleone has promised to fight in his own way until his long term friend and fellow musician Bobi Wine is released.
Bobi Wine, the Kyaddondo East Legislator was arrested in Arua last week together with other members of parliament including Francis Zaake and newly elected Kasiano Wadri along side other civilians and charged with treason following a chaos that led to one of the president’s vehicle damaged.
However, the MPs were reportedly badly tortured with Zaake in a critical condition at Lubaga hospital and Bobi Wine at Makindye Police barracks where he can reportedly neither talk, eat, see nor walk.
As demonstrations that locked-up different areas in Kampala today morning were ongoing, the ‘Mateeka’ singer was on Galaxy FM radio station in Kansanga vowing to stand by the famed ‘People Power’ leader’s side that he won’t just sit down.
“I grew up with Bobi Wine, we struggled together with him, we had differences between but thats usual in friendships. I will not seat down at my place when my brother Bobi Wine is in prison, Bobi Wine is a responsible man, a family man, and a business man, all his businesses are at stake becoz he is detained.” Jose Chameleone said.
The pencil thinned East African music legend added on that Bobi Wine has inspired many youths in the music industry and a very big brand in music.
“I and fellow artists are not happy wen we see our brother in this mess. They always imprison Besigye but that one i don’t care about him much but Bobi Wine is my brother musically since childhood and I know everything about him. WE ARE GOING TO DO SOMETHING”, He concluded
Pastor Wilson Bugembe Condemns the authorities
This comes just after Pastor Wilson Bugembe of Light the World Ministries has just come out to condemn the security forces over the torture allegations on the Arua detained victims.
“What the army did to the MPs damaged their reputation as a morally upright force,… We pray that shedding blood stops; beating Bobi Wine like rubbish was heartbreaking and I believe even Government official feel the same.”
He then requested that the culprits who tortured the MPs should be brought to justice as a must since he is very sure that the police knows the names of those army officials before disclosing his preparations to hold prayers for Bobi Wine and colleagues that will commence immediately after finalizing talks with Bobi’s wife Barbie and Fire Base to set a date.
