It has been a tough couple of weeks since singer Bobi Wine, husband to Barbie Kyagulanyi was arrested together with other 32 people with claims that they stoned and attempted to kill the president of Uganda Yoweri Kaguta Museveni. Yesterday Monday 27th, he was successfully granted bail from court in Gulu on his 7th wedding anniversary.
The singer’s wife Barbie Kyagulanyi penned a beautiful but emotional message to mark the milestone leaving fans in tears.
The message reads;
‘Bobi my love today is our seventh wedding anniversary. Unlike the other anniversaries in the past, this one finds us in a court room in Gulu. It finds you in clutches, unable to walk by yourself. It finds you before a judge, making an application for you to be released on bail so that you can go for medical treatment. It finds you in physical pain. On such days in the past, we would go to the beach or somewhere across the Atlantic. We would cut cake, have some wine and celebrate with our children. But today here we are. Still not sure if you’ll get your freedom or if you will be taken back to prison.’
She went on to say that she was very proud of him and believed a lot in the singer.
‘But let me tell you this. I have never been so proud of you. I am very proud that you are not before this judge because you did anything wrong. Not because you stole public funds or killed a person. You are before the judge because of standing for what you believe in. You have always told me that your dream is to live in a country which works for all citizens. Every day, you are working towards that. Our troubles these past days are a result of that effort. What I can do is once again promise to support you every step of the way. Not because I am your wife but also your best friend.
On our wedding day on 27th August 2011, you composed for me the best song I’ve ever listened to ‘For better for worse.’ You promised to be with me through thin and thick, in sickness and in health, in sorrows and joy. I promised you the same. Here we are on that worse bit of the oath.
Happy wedding anniversary my Love; FOR BETTER,FOR WORSE. IN SICKNESS AND IN HEALTH.’ Wrote Barbie Kyagulanyi.
