Stella Nyanzi strips naked in court

Former Makerere researcher Dr Stella Nyanzi has been sentenced to 18 moths in prison.

Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine was the first prisoner to be tried by video conferencing at Luzira prison.

To show her indignation, Nyanzi decided to undress herself before cameras, saying she ought to have been taken to court where she was yesterday convicted of cyber harassment.

Stella said they brought her to dock in prison to hear her sentence against her will.

This is probably the first time anyone has stripped in court to protest the justice system in Uganda.

She was Thursday acquitted of offensive communication but convicted for harassing the first family on social media following her dirty poem about President Museveni’s mother Esteri Kokundeka.
