EC Village Verification

The case in which Makerere University Researcher, Dr. Stella Nyanzi is accused of calling President Yoweri Museveni ‘a pair of buttocks’ has once again been adjourned to September 21.

This followed a request by the Resident State Attorney Jonathan Muwaganya, asking for more time to receive communication from the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) on when trial should start.

Subsequently, Buganda Road Court Chief Magistrate James Eremye Mawanda adjourned the offensive communication and cyber harassment case ‘against the person of the President’ until September 21.

Previously, the case had come up on July 21 for mention but the state prosecutor asked for more time on grounds that he hadn’t ‘received communication from DPP on when the case was to begin’.

At the time Magistrate Eremye granted the State a period of one month that ended today.

However, under the same pretext, the state has once again had its request for extension granted.
