Ease The Lockdown, Jose Chameleone Tells Government.
Musician Jose Chameleone has appealed to government to direct its efforts into easing the lockdown.
In a statement written online, the 'BaYuda' hit maker challenged government to emulate other countries and open up all sectors instead of keeping Ugandans in an endless lockdown.
He pointed out that Ugandans are starving and they need to go back to work. He wondered if Uganda has become a prison. He also threatened to act if the government does nothing.
"A country of peace and freedom Has become a den of promises and hope. We have waited and waited so long!! We have abided but now that we know other societies are moving forth as they have always done we are keeping backward. Let’s pick onto the world tempo as COVID19 is a worldwide pandemic. You have addressed us sir, we have heeded too. Let Uganda go world tempo than keeping us home as the world moves forth. People are tired of the senseless “LOCKDOWN”: Other countries are opening,Let people have food on the table as you promised some of us were left out!! Open up and let’s do it ourselves. Abaantu Bakooye!!!!!!!! Ffenna Tukoye!! If they don’t wake up, We shall wake them up!!!!!’” be fumed.
The singer joins the likes of celebrities like Abitex who have expressed displeasure with the continued lockdown that has paralysed normal business.
