Daniella unhappy with mother-in-law: You always side with your sons

The wife of Joseph Mayanja alias Jose Chameleone, Daniella Atim, has expressed disappointment in her mother-in-law, Proscovia Musoke, for failing to rein in her sons despite continued incidents of domestic violence.

In an Instagram post, Atim, who has since the Weasel-Sandra Teta domestic violence scandal hit the public scene been exposing the Mayanja brothers, said that Musoke has always sided with her sons every time the daughters-in-law field complaints to her.

The mother of four cited an incident where Teta reported a case of domestic violence to police, but Musoke talked her out of pushing on with the case.

"Dear mother-in-law, you and I know this is Sandra’s head after stitches. This one time she had courage and reported to police with the encouragement of some of her friends who include @maamaghetto [singer Buchaman's wife] .But you dear mama talked her out of it. You talked her out of it and told her she can’t do that to the father of her kids," she posted, captioning a picture showing a stitched head that she said belongs to Teta.

"You see, when we love your boys, we become your children too and we yearn that you protect us as equally as you protect your boys. We hope that you can have honest conversations with your boys."

According to Atim, instead of her mother-in-law advising her sons, she always tells the daughters-in-law to "figure out what angers and pleases their husbands."

"You should also know that your husband is a celeb," Musoke usually tells them, according to Atim.

She said it's time for the mother-in-law to realise that her approach is not helping.

"Dear mama, this doesn’t bring any practical solutions. It only empowers them to keep up what they do because in your eyes it is always the woman’s fault… 'She must have provoked him etc. etc.'. You always say," she wrote.

"Dear mama, the time is now. Take back your position as a parent and start doing the work. We have the most impact on our children, a duty entrusted to us by God. I will be panel beating them from this side as you start the most immediate work. You have the authority to do it. Don’t undermine the power God handed you. Let’s raise a generation of great husbands and fathers. You will be glad we put in the work."

Daniella Atim and Jose Chameleone have been married for over a decade and they have five children, namely: Abba Marcus Mayanja, Alba Shyne Mayanja, Ayla Onsea Mayanja, Alfa Joseph Mayanja, Amma Christian Mayanja.

In 2019, she relocated to the US following years of a tumultuous marriage. While Atim had filed for divorce before, Chameleone insists they're still together.
