Nyanzi was arrested on Friday Last week from Wandegeya police station where she had gone to seek permission and security to organise a peaceful demonstration against Makerere University’s refusal to re-instate her as a Researcher following a 2 year suspension due to allegations of misconduct.
This is the second time Dr. Stella Nyanzi is being taken to court for defaming the President.
