Barbie Kyagulanyi Shocks Uganda as she flies to the U.S

INSIDER REPORTS: Barbie Itungo Kyagulanyi, the wife to the National Unity Platform leader and former presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine, has traveled to United States.

Barbie was captured aboard the Qatar Airways at Entebbe International Airport enroute to Doha from where she was expected to connect to America.

The development comes almost a month after the Bobi Wine sent his children to live with Barbie’s sister at a military base in Texas, U.S.

Bobi’s decision to fly his family out of the country attracted mixed reactions with critics saying he was quick to get his loved ones out of harm’s way while calling for protests which would put his youthful followers in danger.

However, Bobi Wine said he made the decision after he got credible information that his children were in grave danger.

“You remember during the Togikwatako (Presidential Age Limit) debate, a bomb was thrown into the room of my son. They wanted to kill him,” said Bobi in a statement in January.

Bobi said he received intelligence that the state planned to abduct his family members and use them as a bargaining chip to get him to give up on the presidential race.

He also claimed, without providing evidence, that some unknown people were trailing his children for weeks.
