Makerere University academician Dr. Stella Nyanzi is expected to appear in court today for her bail hearing.
Dr. Stella Nyanzi who has been in Luzira prison for about three weeks was charged with cyber harassment and offensive communication after referring to President Museveni as a pair of buttocks.
However recently the Criminal division of High court recalled Dr. Stella Nyanzi case file from Buganda Road Chief Magistrate’s court after an appeal by her lawyers.
Reports indicate that deputy registrar of the High court, Eleanor Khainza, recalled the file after Nyanzi’s lawyer Isaac Kimaze Semakadde wrote asking her to revise the case.
Semakadde accuses Buganda Road court chief magistrate James Ereemye Mawanda of siding with the state to refuse to hear Nyanzi’s bail application.
