Musician turned legislator, Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine and Andrew Mukasa alias Promoter Bajjo of Bajjo Events had no kind words for government at the burial of fallen Fire Base musician Michael Kalinda also known as Ziggy Wine.
The burial was attended by a magnitude of locals from the area, musicians among other public figures and “people power” coordinators.
In a black collar less shirt and a red beret that is synonymous with the “People Power” movement, Bobi Wine spat nothing but fire with no kind words for the ‘killers’ of his colleague.
In his speech, Bobi Wine said that although Ziggy Wine was killed, his soul will live forever.
“We have buried his body, but Ziggy’s soul won’t die. He will forever live in our hearts,” Bobi said in part.
Bobi Wine said that Ziggy Wine was killed and not in an accident like the Police reported.
“He was killed. Ziggy Wine told our team that was beaten. He said this straight from his mouth that he was beaten but Police didn’t do anything about it.
Promoter Bajjo warned the President that he should stop ganging up against anyone who stands up to fight for their own freedom.
” Museveni should not to gang up on people who open up to him, this is wrong and we shall not accept it,” he said in part.
Ziggy Wine was later laid to rest following his death on Saturday night.
There has been mystery surrounding his death as earlier reports showed that he was kidnapped on July 21, 2019 and found dumped near Mulago with his eye plucked out and two fingers cut off.
On Tuesday 6, August, Police Spokesperson Fred Enanga said that the musician died of wounds he sustained following an accident in Kyebando.
Enanga said that unlike the reports that suggested that the left eye was plucked out, Ziggy Wine had both eyes intact.
Eye witnesses on the scene of the accident said that the burns on his body were sustained from the friction from the exhaust pipe and not flat iron like the reports alleged.
