Harvard Student: Why I Sued President Museveni For ‘Blocking Me On Twitter’

A student at the prestigious Harvard University in the US says he has petitioned Uganda’s High Court over President Yoweri Museveni’s decision to block him from viewing his updates on Twitter, arguing that it amounts to an infringement on his constitutionally protected freedoms.

Hillary Innocent Taylor Seguya has also requested a permanent injunction that would stop two other high-ranking officials from blocking him on the social media platform – namely government spokesperson Ofwono Opondo and senior police officer Asan Kasingye.

“After consulting some legal brains, I have filed a lawsuit against president of Uganda @KagutaMuseveni, gov’t spokesperson @OfwonoOpondo & Assistant IGP @AKasingye for illegally blocking me from their handles on 30/7/19, 08/8/19 & 20/7/19,” he twitted.
