Like three ago, news broke out that one of Fire Base Crew members Ziggy Wine real name Michael Kalinda was abducted by unknown men as he made his way to a studio in Kamwokya a Kampala City suburb. He was taken to an unknown destination where he was brutally tortured
Following weeks of his disappearance, Ziggy was a few days ago found half dead at Mulago Hospital where he was dumped. His left eye had been plucked out and two of his fingers were cut according to information we got
Bobi Wine the president Fire Base Crew who got the news on Thursday has come out to condemn this horrible incident
“My close friend and fellow artist (Ziggy Wine) was kidnapped a couple of weeks back, beaten beyond recognition, his left eye plucked out, two of his fingers cut off, all his belongings taken and dumped in Mulago Hospital and left for dead.” Read part of the musician-turned-politician’s statement on social media.
The ‘Kyarenga’ hit singer went ahead to inform the fans that Ziggy who is battling for his dear life is only surviving by the grace of God because he is in a bad state and lost all his senses. He also asked the fans and the public at large to keep Ziggy in their prayers as he does his best to save him.
It should be remembered that Ziggy who is not just a member of Fire Base but also a strong People Power diehard has been posting content in praise of Bobi Wine and People Power on his social media platforms (Facebook in particular)
It is rumoured in some circles that he could have been brutalized to that extent because of his association with Bobi and People Power. We however cannot confirm whether that was the reason.
