Before Stella Nyanzi was taken to court, security was heightened at Kira divisional police headquarters where the social media critic and Makerere University fellow Stella Nyanzi was detained since her arrest on Friday evening.
Nyanzi was arrested in Nakasero shortly after a fundraising drive for school girls’ sanitary pads.
Several opposition leaders including four time FDC presidential candidate Dr. Kizza Besigye showed up in solidarity with Stella Nyanzi, condemning her arrest and prosecution for what they termed as a mere exercise of freedom of expression.
Nyanzi is charged with cyber harassment and offensive communication as per the computer Misuse Act of 2011.
If found guilty she is to face a fine of up to 1.4 million shillings or a three-year imprisonment, or both.
