News coming in indicate that Uganda feminist and Makerere University researcher, Dr Stella Nyanzi , has been arrested and whisked to Kireka Special Investigation Unit (SIU).
Dr. Nyanzi allegedly tried to access her offices at the University which prompted the SIU to arrest her before ‘havoc’ could unfold.
She had, earlier this week, promised to stage a silent protest in a bid to have her job back.
On March 31, 2017, with an order from the appointments board chairman, Bruce Balaba Kabaasa, the then vice chancellor Prof John Ddumba-Ssentamu gave Nyanzi an indefinite suspension on allegations of attacking the First Lady and Education minister Janet Museveni on Facebook.
However, in early October this year, the Makerere University staff appeals tribunal ordered university administration to reinstate Dr Stella Nyanzi and pay for the damages caused.
Before Nyanzi could enjoy her reinstation, the women activist was resummoned by they the Makerere University Appointments Board on October, 22 on allegations of insulting First Lady Janet Museveni in 2017
