“This is the fourth day I am sleeping in a detention at Kira Division Police Station. The police officers are good people. They are not only protecting me, but they also taking care of my needs. Thank you for bringing me breakfast every morning, I share it with the other female cell mates locked up with me,” the letter reads.

Her indictment follows the detention of another woman, Ms Susan Namata, who is also accused of abusing President Museveni.

Another charge

In September, Ms Namata had in a video threatened to hit President Museveni’s teeth with her genitals over the arrest of Kyadondo East Member of Parliament Robert Kyagulanyi, popularly known as Bobi Wine.

This is not Dr Nyanzi’s first attack on the president as she is facing another charge for allegedly describing President Museveni as “a pair of buttocks” and his wife, Janet, “empty-brained” in posts on her Facebook page in April last year.

The case is still ongoing.

Dr Nyanzi was arrested on November 2 and remanded. She will appear in court Friday.
