Bobi Wine and Octopizzo

Things are getting hairy in Uganda. An artiste by the name of Ziggy Wine was allegedly kidnapped and tortured for 3 days. In that time, his fingers were cut off and his left eye plucked out. All this was because of his unwavering support of Bobi Wine.

He was later dumped by the roadside with his personal effects missing. He was rushed to hospital but succumbed to his injuries.


Bobi Wine took to social media to mourn the tragic passing on of his friend and he posted the following on Twitter:

Our friend Ziggy Wine could not make it. He passed on last night- succumbing to injuries sustained after a horrendous encounter with kidnap & torture. Very painful! He joins other countless Ugandans. As we mourn him, we resolve to work even harder to end this. Rest well brother

Statement on the unexplained kidnaps, torture and murder of several #PeoplePower supporters & other political activists. The intention of the perpetrators must be to break our spirits, but we shall never, ever give up the struggle for a better country.
