Life always has its ways of testing perseverance but for gospel singer who turned Member of Parliament, Judith Babirye, it all almost slipped away through her own hands years ago before God turned it all around. The talented singer revealed how she almost committed suicide.

Judith Babirye is a household name when it comes to gospel music. She commands such a following of believers who listen to her music and many claim it is therapy on the tough days. She gives hope to many, nut did you know that she almost lost it all at some point in her early life?

While at dinner at Serena Hotel, Judith Babirye narrated her life story to the people who had gathered. She revealed about how she once attempted ending her life due to failed marriage, stress, poverty, rejection, and many other things that her life had been engulfed in.

In her own words, the Buikwe District Woman Member of Parliament said;

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. 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

Her message got the crowd emotional and many expressed how inspirational she has been in their lives.

Never give up!
