Uganda’s Ethics Minister Simon Lokodo says Dr Stella Nyanzi will undergo a mental test to ascertain if she is “normal” and then “we shall arrest her”
Minister Lokodo on Monday afternoon ordered Uganda Police to apprehend the Makerere University professor for stripping moments before She then fired back at urging him to “Go and arrest Karamojongs walking naked before coming to me”
Dr. Nyanzi who works at Makerere Institute of Social Research stripped and shared nude pictures on social media protesting the closure of her office which she later regained.
She was protesting outside her locked office calling her boss, the executive director of MISR Prof. Mahmoud Mamdani, an oppressor.
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.
