Stella Nyanzi Charged, To Celebrate Easter In Jail

Ugandan activist Stella Nyanzi has been charged with cyber harassment over a Facebook post in which she referred to President Yoweri Museveni as “a pair of buttocks”, a reference which her official charge sheet has described as “obscene or indecent.
