Dr. Stella Nyanzi, the controversial Makerere University scholar who recently undressed to have her office opened is back in the news, not for undressing, though she could do so if she chooses to. Nyanzi, a medical anthropologist with a PhD from the University of London has been denied a UK Visa.
The reason for Nyanzi being barred from entering the UK stems from her recent troubles that left her undressing and uttering all sorts of words that cannot be reproduced on these pages.

"I was booked to fly to Cambridge for a conference on Monday of this week. My passport was not ready in time for my flight. So I cancelled the trip. I am not that keen on the cold weather, polluted air, congestion, non-familiar foods, accents and high costs for foul inorganic stuff in the UK."
Why VISA was not issued
"You have declared that you are employed as a Research Fellow for Makerere University, earning 3,000,000 UGX (£608) per month. However, checks by our office have revealed that you are currently the subject of disciplinary action for gross misconduct and insubordination from the university...
The 42-year-old concludes, "I have been in and out of that god-forsaken country a million times. I always return home. That is why I have a thick wad of passports. I love Uganda much much much! Why would I want to stay in the UK? Why would anyone think the UK is better than Uganda?"
