Makerere University research fellow, Dr Stella Nyanzi has asked Buganda Road Court to summon President Museveni over allegations that she harassed him by insulting his late mother on her Facebook page.
Dr Nyanzi who is facing cyber harassment and offensive communication charges, on Friday told court that Mr Museveni should appear in court and explain how he was offended by her Facebook posts.
“Police should complete investigations in the shortest time possible and also bring President Museveni to face court and explain how he was offended by my posts,” she said.
This was after the state brought an amended charge sheet to the court presided over by Gladys Kamasanyu.
Dr Nyanzi denied the charges. She did not ask for bail as was hoped and was further remanded to Luzira Prison until November 22 when she will appear in court for further mention.
The State contends that on September 16 and 19, 2018, Dr Nyanzi posted on her Facebook page suggestions deemed obscene against the President’s deceased mother Esteri Kokundeka.
It is stated that she also repeatedly posted messages to disturb or attempted to disturb the peace, quiet or right to privacy of the President.
