A Ugandan feminist and lecturer, Stella Nyanzi, has been jailed over a poem she wrote about Vagina and shared on Facebook in September, 2018.

The poem written by the Ugandan feminist was directed at the Ugandan President, Yoweri Museveni, describing his birth and his mother’s vagina.

Stella who was arraigned before Buganda Road Court, was charged with “cyber harassment and offensive communication”.

She was accused of intending to disturb the peace and privacy of President, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni and his mother the late Esteeri.

The academic had stated that she has no case to answer and pushed for her immediate release, but the judgement wasn’t in her favour.
