There is fear that Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi Bobi Wine may never erect again and later produce children after reports that his testes have been damaged.
Bobi Wine who is jailed at Makindye Military Barracks was recently arrested and tortured on the eve of voting in Arua Municipality after President Museveni’s convoy clashed with supporters of MP Kassiano Wadri who eventually won the by-election.
Reports have emerged that whereas Bobi Wine’s facial injuries are drying up, the artiste-turned politician is suffering a hell of private injuries that among others include his balls also known as testicles which were reportedly squeezed to nothing by his tormentors.
This first came to light after Makindye East MP Ibrahim Kasozi who on Sunday visited Bobi Wine along with some NRM MPs told media on Monday that Bobi Wine is “hurting down there” besides fears of damaged kidneys and hip bone.
As if that was not enough, Busiro East MP Medard Sseggona who also visited him on Monday came with a similar report that Bobi’s balls could have been “badly damaged.”
This reportedly explains why security finally allowed Bobi’s personal physician to access him for fear that his condition could worsen as the MP still struggles to stand and sit on his own. There is now fear that if indeed Bobi’s testes have been damaged then the father of 4 may not live to enjoy sex again, or even hold an erection and produce more children.
According to Dr. Emmanuel Bukalu of Zziwa Memorial Medical Centre in Bweyogerere, testes play mainly two roles; to produce sperms and hormones, particularly testosterone– a hormone which characterizes men and makes them different from women.
“Those two balls or testes produce sperms through the seminiferous tubules and also provide space where the sperms are actually stored until that time when transferred perhaps through ejaculation. So if those balls are damaged then the production of spermatozoa will not be possible, thus one may not have children,” Dr. Bukalu said.
Dr. Bukalu added the destruction of testes may also come in several other ways which may affect a man’s ability to hold an erection or bear biological children.
“Injuries in the testes may come with several infections which may turn disastrous.If the injury is to the epididymis tubes that transfer sperms then during the healing process, there can be a blockage, which stops ejaculated sperms from swimming through the urethra to meet the female egg for fertilization.
Bukalu added that damage in testes may also result to epididymitis– an inflammation of the epididymis. Epididymis is an elongated organ on the posterior surface of a testis that stores sperm while they mature and constitutes the convoluted beginning of the vas deferens- the duct which conveys sperm from the testicle to the urethra.
When asked about the chances of a man with damaged testes or blocked tubes to bear children, Dr. Bukalu said that the procedure to unblock such tubes needs a highly specialized medic which is more or less impossible in Uganda.
“It needs a very specialized person to unblock them because it involves specialized inhole operations and others and I have not really seen anywhere here [Uganda] where it can be done,” Dr. Bukalu said.
