Democratic Party nation chief Joseph Mayanja popularly known as Chameleone now free to hold concerts. Police finally granted the musician turned politician permission to sing following the cancellation of his July show in Masaka sub region.
Masaka Regional Police Spokesperson, Paul Kangave said on Monday that Chameleone is now free to sing during his shows as they had planned before since his managers have fulfilled the requirements.
“Chameleone and his managers had not followed the set guidelines like telling us the agreement they have with the agreement they have with the organisers and the number of people expected at their show since everything has fulfilled, he’s free to sing now,” said Kangave.
Kangave restated that organisers of music concerts have to seek clearance from police headquarters in Naguru and District Police commanders to ensure that planned venues are secure.
However one of Chameleone’s managers, Mutima said the whole procedure of seeking approval from Naguru is inconvenient. He also suggested that police should authorize DPCs to do the approval.
“We have filled what the police want, but we request that the DPCs be authorized to handle these small issues,” He said.
