In a face book post today morning, Bobi wine announced that Micheal Kalinda aka Zigy wyne had passed on Last night at Mulago hospital where he had been receiving treatment for the torture wounds and burns he had sustained during his kidnap.
Bobi wine lamented that Zigy Wyne’s last days on earth were very painful since those who kidnapped him grossly tortured him that included cutting off of his two fingers to an extent of plucking out one of his eyes.
Zigy was a solid and loyal member of the Firebase entertainment crew, a young hard working man and also an ardent supporter of the People Power movement.
Like many other Ugandans, Bobi wine noted that Zigy Wyne was looking forward to better country but it is painful that he had to go through the worst for his beliefs.
“Last night we visited the grieving family at Mulago and they are completely devastated. I don’t know how those who carry out these atrocities on the citizens of Uganda hope to pay back for the tears they have caused to families and communities.” Said Bobi wine
Bobi wine has however called upon Ugandans to unite so as they can resolve and rescue the country what he termed as terror.
“As we mourn our brother, may we resolve to work even harder to redeem our country from this terror.”
Bobi wine further noted that the state of our country Uganda is worrying because Zigy Wyne is just one of the countless people who are kidnapped, tortured and murdered daily in our nation since the inception of the People Power movement, reports of many supporters disappearing, while others have died in questionable ways, including suspicious accidents have been received.
“Wumula milembe muganda wange”. May God receive your soul in eternal glory, he concluded.
