Magistrate refuses to dismiss Stella Nyanzi buttocks case

Stella Nyanzi in court

Buganda Road Court Chief magistrate James Eremye Mawanda has rejected an application by Dr Stella Nyanzi seeking dismissal of her “pair of buttocks” case.

Nyanzi who has been in and out of jail is charged with offensive communication for calling President Museveni a “pair of buttocks”.

In his Wednesday ruling, Eremye said he would wait for the upper court to make a decision and guide him on the matter citing the pending case in constitutional court.

He ordered Nyanzi to continue reporting to court every thirty days for mentioning of the case on the same bail terms.

In her response, a disappointed Nyanzi said she has been coming to court for the last one year and there has been nothing really happening.

Her lawyer Isaac ssemakadde said the constitutional court has long diverted from addressing issues that concern the ordinary citizen.
