Major opposition candidate in the last conducted presidential election in Uganda, Robert Ssentamu Kyagulanyi well known as Bobi Wine took time out yesterday to recall and write how the love and spirit of comradeship all started with his wife, Barbie Kyagulanyi who suffered several attacks during the recently held Presidential election.
Bobi Wine said Barbie never told him no right from the day he whispered words into her ears.
Bobi Wine who said he made the move on February 16, 2002, also recalled that Barbie never said yes to his request.
Bobi Wine said Barbie did was to hold his hands and walked along through the Parliamentary Avenue as he escorted her to get a taxi to Nsambya.
“On this 16th day of February in 2002 at the National theatre, I whispered my first words into your ears.
I told you my story, my fears and my hopes and I asked you to trust me. You didn’t say no and you didn’t say yes, you just held my hand and took me for a walk.
“That day we walked holding hands along the Parliamentary Avenue as I escorted you to get a taxi to Nsambya.
“We have since walked hand in hand through my ghetto life, through the street fights, the nightclub brawls and also faced life threatening situations together but you have never let my hand go.
“From girlfriend to bestfriend to wife and now to #ComradeHoney. Only God knows where we are going but one thing am sure of, where ever we’ll go, we’ll be together.
“Doctor Mercy Mirembe Ntangaare wrote that play ‘Lady, will you marry me?’ and cast me to act as President and you as the first lady but little did she know that was fulfilling a prophesy.
“As we acted on stage, deep inside I meant every single word in my lines. No wonder I brought out the character perfectly. It was a love affair conceived in art and born on stage.
“It was not love at first sight, it grew and still growing.
“Long story short, it is 20 years today and and you are still my heartbeat. I promised that you will never have to share me and so far am still doing good on that”, Bobi Wine said.
Bobi Wine thereafter wished his wife, Barbie happy 20 years of coming together anniversary and ended the quote with; “It’s been one hell of a ride!”
