Barbie Kyagulanyi Itungo, wife to singer turned politician Robert Ssentamu Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine has today (Wednesday) afternoon pleaded with Government to take her husband to hospital for treatment.
A visibly worried Barbie revealed this while speaking to the congregation who were praying for the ‘Kyarenga’ singer at Rubaga Cathedral in Kampala.
The mother of four who sounded rather strong condemned the government on how it is treating its citizens including her husband who the Member of Parliament for Kyadondo East Constituency.
“I wouldn’t like to talk more about how he is doing but he needs a hospital. He is detained in a wrong place. That is not where he should be. As a wife and a Ugandan, I don’t like the way journalists and Ugandan leaders were treated by people who would be protecting them,” she said.
Dressed in a purple Gomesi, Barbie asked the congregation to calmly light up their candles to pray for the nation.
“Let’s keep peace and be responsible as we light up our candles. As Bobi had told me that when I get a chance to talk to the people, I would like us to light them up to pray for the country,” she concluded her speech.
Bobi wine was arrested in Arua Municipality as he campaigned for the area’s newly elected MP Wadri Kassiano. The singer is currently detained at Makindye Military Barracks on charges of illegal possession of fire arms and ammunition.
He is set to appear in court tomorrow Thursday 23rd August 2018.
