Barbra Itungo Kyagulanyi, the wife of detained Kyaddondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi alia Bobi Wine, says no amount of pressure and acts of torture will stop her from fighting to see that her husband is released.

Ms Barbra Kyagulanyi, who spoke to NTV Uganda on Sunday afternoon, revealed that although her husband was physically weak at the moment, he was still determined to continue fighting for what he called a more democratic Uganda.

Bobi Wine, who has been in prison since Monday last week, is said to be in bad health after being tortured by the military following the fracas that happened in the last campaigns of Arua Municipality MP seat.

Although no images of Bobi Wine have been released since his arrest, his lawyers, wife and the officers of the Uganda Human rights Commission, who met him at Makindye Military barracks on Friday, said that he was severely tortured and is in great pain.

"His forehead is bruised and his eyes are red. He has many wounds including one on his ear. He seems to have been punched many times on the face. He cannot walk. He cannot sit straight. He speaks with difficulty and has a lot of pain breathing," his wife Barbie Kyagulanyi narrated after the visit.
