The Kabaka of Buganda Ronald Mutebi II has joined hundreds of people sympathizing with the embattled Kyadondo East Member of Parliament Hon. Kyagulanyi Robert Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine who was brutalized and later arrested by security operatives in the Northern Town of Arua.

In a message delivered by the Kingdom official Owk. Emmanuel Ssendawula to the lawmaker’s Wife Barbra Itungo Kyagulanyi, Kabaka praised the mother of four for tirelessly supporting the husband and inspiring him.

Kabaka added that the Kingdom is aware about the trying times the family is going through and begged the family to stand firm since they are behind them.
