Barbie Kyagulanyi flies out to visit the children.

The “ghetto First Lady” 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 amidst the struggle her husband is going through with the Uganda electoral commission. This comes after her and the husband had been under house arrest for 11days.

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 Wine 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 had been trailing his children for weeks.
