Wife of Kyandodo East Member of Parliament, Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu aka Bobi Wine took to her Facebook to celebrate their seventh anniversary amidst their current challenges.
Legislator and Singer has not be able to go back home since the Arua political scuffle that led him to be jailed by the army and later by police. Today, Bobi Wine and 33 others are appearing before court in Gulu to hear their bail request.
In her words,
“Bobi my love, today is our seventh wedding anniversary. Unlike the other anniversaries in the past, this one finds us in a court room in Gulu. It finds you in clutches, unable to walk by yourself. It finds you before a judge, making an application for you to be released on bail so that you can go for medical treatment. It finds you in physical pain. On such days in the past, we would go to the beach or somewhere across the Atlantic. We would cut cake, have some wine and celebrate with our children. But today here we are. Still not sure if you’ll get your freedom or if you will be taken back to prison.
But let me tell you this. I have never been so proud of you. I am very proud that you are not before this judge because you did anything wrong. Not because you stole public funds or killed a person. You are before the judge because of standing for what you believe in. You have always told me that your dream is to live in a country which works for all citizens. Everyday, you are working towards that. Our troubles these past days are a result of that effort. What I can do is once again promise to support you every step of the way. Not because Iam your wife but also your best friend.
On our wedding day on 27th August 2011, you composed for me the best song I’ve ever listened to ‘For better for worse.’ You promised to be with me through thin and thick, in sickness and in health, in sorrows and joy. I promised you the same. Here we are on that worse bit of the oath. 😏
Happy wedding anniversary my Love; FOR BETTER,FOR WORSE. IN SICKNESS AND IN HEALTH.”

Well, today is the forth marriage anniversary to our ghetto couple. Ghetto gladiator BobiWine took on his Facebook Page to say a few heart warming words to his wife Barbie,
In his words,
It’s been fourteen amazing years ever since I said “I love you” and you said “I love you too”. Four years ago,the whole world joined us to celebrate a Ten year old love affair that had taken us through thick and thin. Today everyone is wishing us a lovely #fourth wedding anniversary….. But darling I want to wish you a Beautiful #14th Love anniversary. We have been through it all and yet I fall in love with you everyday. I love you Barbie and I hope it still sounds exactly the same as the first time I said it to you. I love you very much.
We wish this awesome couple many more years together.
Well Thank God it is Friday but here Capital FM Friday equals Flash Back. We love that Barbie this morning woke up with the same Flash back Friday mood. Well, it is true God rises people from dust to crowns of glory. Wife to Ghetto gladiator, Barbie testified this morning.
Barbie took on her Facebook this morning to encourage a sister this morning. “Don’t sit and feel sorry for yourself whenever things are difficult,”she wrote.
Barbie could be one of the most envied ladies in the country’s entertainment circles. From a multi million wedding to a never ending romance. The couple has held it together even during those trying scandals. Bobi Wine should keep counting himself a lucky man. However , Barbie revealed that all this started somewhere.
“Looking at this scorching sun this morning reminds me of the drought in my husband’s pocket 14 years ago.
One february,we were too broke that we couldnt afford breakfast or even tax fares from kanyanya to kamwokya. To get a meal, we had to open up an account of sorts at a restaurant in Kamwokya. The owner is such a good mutooro man. He let us eat any day anytime and my husband paid after several weeks whenever he got money.
We walked from our muzigo in kanyanya,through Bahai temple,Kyebando and down to Kamwokya everyday. I am from a well to do family but I chose not to cry to my relatives. During this time me and my husband had dreams and aspirations. He dreams big you know. As we walked through the dust and jumped those dirty myala everyday,we talked. Infact we always found ourselves in kamwokya somehow.
He told me of how he was going to be rich. How his music would never disappear from the surface of this earth. He told me that he would build an empire and his name would never be forgotten. The story is long..
I later realised that such times were meant to prepare us for a later stage when we had a lot to eat and a car to drive. See,when you are waiting on God to take you to another level, you have to learn to be content. Content with what you are/have at the moment. God is letting you go through such times to prepare you for when you reach that goal you are working so hard to achieve. You know,if you have not gone through the training of being happy and content with little,you will never be happy with a lot. Even if you achieve your dreams,you will be excited for a short while and then your spirit will start yearning for something bigger.
Be happy with the little you have as you dream big. Be patient in times of drought so that when it rains you will appreciate it more.
Me and my husband have learnt to appreciate each season. We are happy when we have a lot and when things seem to be tough. We have the ability to truly enjoy the hard times because we know we are being prepared for when things are better. Don’t sit and feel sorry for yourself whenever things are difficult. As you put your trust and energy in a better tomorrow don’t forget that the challenges you are facing today will be your fall back strength in future.
Happy new month everyone. Pray,believe,trust and BE PATIENT.”
