“But I want to tell the Minister and Government to help us and release my husband because am currently not fine.

“I have not been able to talk to him, no one has explained to me the current situation.

He left a note saying that he intended to remain and work in Japan.

Nampewo said that his Husband was not escaping but rather trying to find financial help.

“He was expecting a lot from those games, and they didn’t explain to him why he had failed to qualify. He left a note that he was looking for a job. Right now he needs help, he needs people to comfort him.

“He is tramatised. Right now he doesn’t need to be in jail, he needs someone to comfort him because he even collapsed at Kibuli Police and then they claimed that he was just resting.

“One time when he went to Australia, on coming back thieves attacked him, they banged his head so you never know those things are disturbing him, we are worried as a family. He is been through a lot, and we need Government to help.”
