Ziggy Wine spent one week in Mulago with no attendant


Ziggy Wine, a musician attached to the recording studio owned by Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi, aka Bobi Wine, spent more than one week in Mulago’s casualty unit receiving treatment before his relatives traced his whereabouts.

Our sources have told Sunday Monitor that Ziggy Wine, who at the time was unable to speak, managed to inform medical personnel attending to him that he was Ziggy but none of them could make sense out of it.

“He looked to be in a lot of pain. Sometimes he would get off the bed and walk to the toilet. At one time we had to tie him to the bed to restrain his movements,” our source said.

The source said Ziggy had an injury on the eye but doubted reports that his eye had been removed.

The artiste was put on antibiotics. All the time he was admitted to the ward, he had no attendant and was hardly eating, which according to medical personnel might have caused his health to deteriorate further.

Medical personnel were prompted to do a CT scan because Ziggy was bleeding endlessly from the ears. “We found that he was bleeding in the brain,” our source revealed.

Later when his relatives surfaced, the source said, he revealed to them that the patient was Michael Alinda, aka Ziggy Wine.

After spending one week at the casualty ward, Ziggy Wine was discharged but later returned to the casualty.

On Friday evening, Mr Kyagulanyi took to social media to announce: “My close friend and fellow artist (sic) 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.”

Kampala Metropolitan spokesperson Patrick Onyango said Ziggy Wine’s relatives were still fearing to report a case at police but the police will follow up after a report is made.
