How Ugandan Activist Stella Nyanzi Got Imprisoned For Cursing President Museveni’s Reign – Her Poem About His Mother’s “Loose Vagina”
“How do women get men who are standing in the way of gender equality to listen to them? Grab them by their genitalia. Unless you grab and squeeze hard, they’re not listening”
Arrested from the Wandegeya Police Station, Stella was imprisoned after the government accused her of “cyber harassment and offensive communication” for posting a poem on Facebook.
Published last September, the poem uses a graphic description of the birth of the Ugandan President and his mother’s vagina to criticize his “oppression, suppression and repression” of the country, which he has ruled for over 30 years.
After serving 8 months, Nyanzi said the court had no charge against her and demanded freedom but the court refused .
In the last hearing, Nyanzi asked the court to summon 20 defense witnesses, including President Yoweri Museveni himself.
But her page remains active. In a recent post, Nyanzi said she would not stop “Pocking the Leopard’s anus” after refusing offers for a seat in the suspect’s dock ” – referring to a government position.
