Four One One

I almost poisoned myself – Judith Babirye

When you see people in prominent positions, do not be quick to conclude that all has always been well with them.

Judith Babirye may be one of the most successful and talented Gospel artistes in Uganda with a number of albums, concerts and hits to her name.

She is also a Member of Parliament but do not let that success and fame fool you. Babirye has been to hell and back.

Narrating her story during a Mother’s Day dinner at Serena Hotel, among the things she said was the saddening news of her attempt at suicide.

“I got out of marriage when it was too much. I reached a point of poisoning myself but I had to hold on for what the future might bring,” Babirye said.

“I came from the village but look, I drive a V8 now, and I am in Parliament. I carried sacks of charcoal and never dreamt of coming to Kampala but now I eat at Kampala Serena Hotel.”

Well, I guess like they say no condition is permanent so you who is troubling might as well just hold on.
