Nyanzi is facing charges of offensive communication and cyber harassment when he insulted President Museveni’s mother.
While appearing at the Buganda Road Court on Friday, the Makerere University researcher denied the charges read to her by Gladys Kamasanyu.
She therefore asked court to summon President Museveni and be a key witness and show how the posts insulted his mother.
“Police should complete investigations in the shortest time possible and also bring President Museveni to face court and explain how he was offended by my posts,” she said.
The State asserts that on September 16 and 19, 2018, Dr Nyanzi posted on her Facebook page words abusing President Museveni’ s late mother and continued to post messages that disrupted the peace of the president.
