Activists are demanding for immediate release of Dr. Stella Nyanzi.

The activists are led by lawyer Isaac Ssemakadde and Habib Buwembo, Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) National Secretary for labour.

The activists say Dr. Nyanzi has been detained for more than the legal 48 hours and want her to be produced in court or be released unconditionally.

The controversial academician was arrested last Friday at Makerere University as she tried to access her office. In October, the oldest institution for higher Education in Uganda was ordered to reinstate the suspended research fellow back to her duty.

Later that day, Dr. Nyanzi was charged for abusing the person of the president and his mother.

It is alleged that she abused President Yoweri Museveni and her mother on September 16 on her Facebook page.

SP Vincent Ssekatte, CID Spokesperson said Dr. Nyanzi committed offensive communication and cyber harassment.
