When Makerere Vice Chancellor Professor Ddumba Ssentamu attempted to talk to her, the irate Nyanzi told him off: “I’m handling the matter”.

She added: “I will not allow Dr. Mamdani to access his office until I can access mine. He is a criminal. I got in here on merit not as favour.”

Opposition leader Kizza Besigye and Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago extended their sympathies to Nyanzi for being allegedly oppressed.
