Hundreds Of Boda Boda Cyclists Defy Police Directives, Storm Chamili’s Office Opening Ceremony Chanting “Our Lord Mayor”
All is set for the official opening of singer cum politician, Joseph Mayanja aka Jose Chameleone campaign command center in Lubaga, along balintuma Road.
Chameleone who is serious running for Kampala City Lord Mayorship will be officially opening his office and also launching campaign task force ahead of 2021 general elections.
NUP presdo, Hon. Bobi Wine is also expected to attend the function of one of his strong political guns. Hundreds of Boda Boda Cyclists from city corners have already camped at the office premises waiting for their ‘man’.
In one of the clip captured by our award winning reporter, Nalule Aminah, the Boda Boda’s can be heard chanting ‘Chameleone our lord mayor’ on top of their voices.
Last Week, Chameleone and his supporters were teargassed by ruthless cops in a bid to block his ceremony as he had earlier scheduled it. In an interview with this website Chamili confirmed that his left leg had been injured in the process.
“I am receiving treatment. My left leg has been injured,” he said.
The Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson Patrick Onyango confirmed the incident and said two suspects have been arrested and detained at Old Kampala Police Station on charges of disobedience of lawful orders.
Onyango said that they talked to organisers of the launch to put in place all the necessary SOPs of the Ministry of Health something they refused to adhere to.
Onyago said, “This was going to be a breeding ground for Covid-19. We talked to them again and they decided to leave the venue but later on they reorganised and came attacking police. We responded by firing teargas to disperse them,”
