Dr Nyanzi to appear before court today.

By Damali Mukhaye.

The controversial Makerere University research Fellow Dr. Stella Nyanzi is today expected to appear before court for allegedly insulting the first lady also minister of education Janet Kataha Museveni.

Kampala metropolitan Police Spokesperson Emilian Kayima has confirmed that Dr Nyanzi is supposed to appear before court on two charges including Cyber harassment under the computer Misuse Act of 2011 and offensive communication.

Nyanzi was arrested on Friday last week by plain clothed security operatives and is still detained at Kira division police station.

Nyanzi in different face book posts attacked the education Minister over her statements that government does not have money to buy sanitary pads for school going girls and her position against the transportation of children on boda-bodas which she said puts children’s lives at risk.

Nyanzi has since been suspended from Makerere University over her social media utterances. She is expected to appear before the appointments board for disciplinary action to be taken against her.
