National Unity Platform party president Robert Kyagulanyi, also known as Bobi Wine, confesses to having anger management issues stemming from long-term use of drugs, which he has been struggling to overcome for years.
Bobi Wine, while addressing his fans in Canada at a church, said that he has anger management issues and requested that the pastor pray for him so that he overcomes the problem.
“I have been struggling with anger management issues since 2015; that is the time I tried to seriously quit taking hard stuff; I easily lose my temper. Please, pastor, pray for me,” said Bobi Wine.
He noted that it is a struggle every day but is grateful to his wife, who has so understood and has kept him in check whenever he goes overboard.
“Sometimes, it gets overwhelming, and when I can’t control my temper, I lash out, sometimes not remembering what I said during the episodes,” said Bobi Wine.
According to some sources, they were not surprised with his confessions; they have witnessed those outbursts several times.
“Like the most recent one, when he had a rally in Luwero, he spoke like a demon-possessed person, lashing out with tribal sentiments,” said the source.
However, it is worth mentioning that what was intriguing was that after the emotional expressions, Bobi Wine couldn’t remember any of the things he had said.
The American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry notes that children who witness violence between partners can have anger problems, often closely connected to substance use disorders (SUD). Children who grow up in homes with high levels of aggression and violence are more likely to become violent and abuse substances as adults.
Anger is a powerful emotion that can be defined as a strong feeling of annoyance, displeasure, or hostility. Anger is a natural emotion that everyone feels from time to time, and it is often a justifiable response when expressed in a healthy way. However, poor anger management can lead to a number of highly negative consequences for an individual and their loved ones, especially when addiction is involved.
