Barbie Kyagulanyi, the wife of legislator Bobi Wine, has saluted MP Francis Zaake for her resilience and calmness as her husband battles for life following alleged police torture.
Mityana Municipality legislator Zaake was allegedly tortured in police custody following his arrest ten days ago.
Zaake is currently receiving medical treatment at Rubaga Hospital.
Barbie has been impressed with Zaake’s wife.
She wrote: “You will never understand how much pain spouses of victims of torture go through unless you are those spouses’ friends, relatives or family members.
I particularly want to commend Bridget for braving the sight of a nearly dying husband, the suspenseof what more bad news could be coming from the doctors and mostly, for not being shaken by the harassment from security personnel who among many other things denied her privacy and treated her like a prisoner while she was in hospital nursing her badly wounded husband Zaake.
Bridget, I pray for bravery on your part; that you will tell your story as calmly as you told it to me to expose the wrongs that should be made correct and to demand for better from those whose mandate is to protect and not cause harm to us.
Our prayers are with you, your now sick three months old baby, your sick husband and all your other family members.”
