Jailed Makerere University research fellow Dr. Stella Nyanzi appears before Buganda Road Court for bail hearing.
On April 10, Magistrate Ereemye remanded Dr Nyanzi to Luzira women’s prison until today when he said he would hear her bail application and also receive a report of her mental status as requested by the state at her maiden appearance.
Last week, Dr Nyanzi fought off doctors who had gone to her prison cells to examine her mental status as required by the state.
She is facing charges of cyber harassment and offensive communications arising from the Computer Misuse Act.
Core to these accusations is that she referred to the person of President Museveni in one of her Face book posts earlier this year as ‘a pair of buttocks’, a reference that the state says was offensive.
