Makerere Research Fellow, Dr. Stella Nyanzi, 42, was produced in court on Monday, April 10 on charges of Cyber Harassment and Offensive Communication.
The charges stem from the posts she's been making on her Facebook page in the past few days. According to the charge sheet, On Jan 28, using her Facebook page, Nyanzi referred to the President as a "pair of buttocks" and between January and March, the posts she's been making were intended to disturb the peace, quiet or the right of privacy of the President.
She denied both charges, saying her posts highlight problems faced by Ugandans.
The prosecution demanded that the accused be subjected to a thorough medical check before they could proceed with her case, citing how she once undressed, but her lawyers objected to this move.
Stella was remanded to Luzira prison until April 25 but even in court, she continued being her usual self though very careful with the words she used in court.

The clip leaked online during the time Jeff Kiwa was held at the Special Investigations Unit in Kireka to help with investigations in the case of a child who was beheaded, the investigations were concluded and Jeff had no case to answer.
This was very good news to the Nkwatako singer, Sheebah Karungi, who was quick to write on her wall 'Asirise Teyejusa' meaning 'It's often better to say nothing.'
Jeff Kiwanuka through his lawyers Muwema & Company have sent a legal document dated June 16 to Moses Sekibogo (Moze Radio) and Douglas Seguya (Weasel Doug) to pull down the video, issue an apology approved by the said lawyers Muwema and Co not later than Monday, 20 June, 2016.
In addition, they should each pay Shs500m which totals to Shs1billion. The duo are yet to respond.
In the clip, Moze Radio who was seated with Weasel talks of how they warned Jeff Kiwa to quit witchcraft but did not take heed of their advice, ''It's now time to deal with your troubles as we all have our issues to deal with." He goes on to say; "You sacrificed people, you have human heads and now you want to link these things to us."
Meanwhile, in the clip, Moze Radio did more of the talking while Weasel was just nodding prompting comments from fans that suggested that very action is summarized in their names, one is a Radio and the other is a TV.

Some taxis, not all have their drivers and touts up to something cynical. However, this is activated by the unsuspecting travellers with valuables like smart phones, laptops or even cash in hand bags. If you are a lady trying to get into a taxi and the front seat is not occupied, the conductor will give you an option of taking up that seat.
Seconds later, the driver will feign a reason strong enough for you the passenger at the co-driver's seat to help put the driving mirror right as these are old cars normally so all that is expected. While you are trying to give a helping hand, that action will only stop when he tells you that it's in the right position.
Meanwhile, as you are doing that, the tout is making his way to your handbag or rack sack to find your most expensive, irreplaceable items.
If the above trick is not used on mirrors, then, it will be the door. "Oluji Telunywedde..." meaning that the door is not closed properly. This is a reason so strong to either open and hit it real hard just to ensure all is well. The next time you are in a taxi and the same happens, this should be enough to let you know that a bad situation is developing.
You now know what to do the next time you take up the front seat, be smart.
In the above pic, the driver and his tout had just done a similar trick. The tout took a travellers laptop only to replace it with another object, on getting out of the car the passenger realised his laptop was missing. It was then that he hopped onto a bike and a chase ensued.
Luck was not on their side this time around, the taxi got an accident leaving ther driver stuck right in his seat. Unfortunately, the tout took off with the laptop.

This is coming days after Katsha had just secured his freedom, though sources privy to the matter say it's far from over, otherwise, he could be here to at least check on his one-week-old baby having spent the festive season under police custody.
King Lawrence had long left Uganda at the time when Ivan was battling with a case of theft for an iPhone6 to go and sort himself out with the authorities down in South and on the advise of his lawyer, King Lawrence turned himself in at a Sandton based police station only to find that he had more cases filed for him.
Sources add that it's a long list though most of them are not as popular as the Rich Gang Crew. Among those arrested, it's said that a relative of ex-beauty queen, Barbara Kimbugwe is one of them, does this explain why she was in South Africa early in the week, may be not.
King Lawrence now has a new Instagram account after the old one was 'hacked', it's that account that had posts of King Lawrence claiming he had slept with socialites Huddah Monroe and Zari, not forgetting the Tiffah-paternity DNA test drama, they were all on that account.
The crime intelligence unit has been tracking the activities of the suspects for months after they discovered that these guys had access to a government-registered supplier database.
"It is alleged that they created a false government agency with fraudulent documents and posed as suppliers. They would then send victims quotes and request they pay upfront but the goods were never delivered," a source that first arrested the first syndicate last September noted.
King Lawrence's last posts on Instagram were made four days back, sadly, they were about Zari and Platnumz baby.

Over 20 cars stolen from the UK were recovered in Kampala.
This Lexus was stolen from West London in April but using a smartphone app, it was discovered in Kampala but the officers were stunned when they discovered 28 more vehicles.
Most of these cars use keyless technology which has enabled criminals using reprogrammed keys to drive off. It takes a thief five seconds to break into a keyless car.
The vehicle that was stolen from West London was tracked to Le Harve in France then shipped to Middle East in Oman before making it's way to Mombasa. The Lexus RX 450h was driven from Mombasa to Kampala.
"This investigation is an excellent example of the close co-operation between the UK National Crime Agency, National Vehicle Intelligence Service, Interpol and APU to tackle the increasing threat from organised vehicle crime."
"Working with the police and security services in Kenya and Uganda, we have been able to dismantle an international criminal network that has been responsible for stealing high-value cars from the UK and exporting them to East Africa," Paul Stanfield, National Crime Agency.
Other cars that were recovered include a Range Rover Evogue, BMW X3, Audis and other prestige makes are in the process of being repatriated.
This Range Rover Evogue was part of the 29 vehicles that were recovered in Kampala using the smartphone app.
