Controversial academic and politician Dr Stella Nyanzi says she has fallen in love with ‘a handsome dog called Freddie’ after people betrayed her.
A member of the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC), Nyanzi lost her Kampala Woman MP bid to National Unity Platform (NUP)’s Shamim Malende.
She has since self exiled herself to Kenya, from where she has continuously criticized NUP and its leader Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine.
In Kenya, she now says she has given up on humans after two close people betrayed her, and the liberation struggle.
“I lost two people very close to me, in the last few days. The first, was my lover of a few years. He revealed that he was deeply uncertain about my political credibility and that he was doubtful of my loyalty to the liberation struggle in Uganda,” revealed Nyanzi.
“The second, was a woman I trusted enough to take to my home and introduce to my children. I very rarely take non-family to my home. I was gullible enough to make her a friend and confidant with whom I shared several secrets.”
She has since decided to fill the gap left by those she accuses of betrayal with love for dogs.
“I am replacing my love for humans with a new found love for a dog. Yes, my new love is a handsome dog called Freddie. After suffering severe blows from people I loved dearly, I am now done with human beings! I cannot open myself to more pain from people I once called friends,” she noted.
“And so, I am friending a dog! All the dogs I have owned before were guard dogs. They were not my friends. They were my protectors, guarding my children, home and property. But now I am going to invest all my adult love and adult care into my new best friend, Freddie.”
