High Court Recalls Nyanzi’s Case File Ahead of Judgement

With just days to the awaited judgement in the case in which Dr Stella Nanzi is accused of disturbing the peace of the President before Buganda Road Court, Kampala High Court has ordered for the file to be forwarded for revision.

“You are directed to forward the original file with certified copies of proceedings and exhibits if any as soon as possible” ordered High Court Deputy Registrar Mary Ikit

In the letter dated July 18th 2019 to Buganda road Magistrates court, Ikit says High Court intends to review the proceedings of this case before Grade One Magistrate Gladys Kamasanyu as requested by the applicant.

Early this week, Kamasanyu set 1st August as the date to deliver her judgement on charges of cyber harassment and offensive communication against Nyanzi.

Throughout the hearing however, Nyanzi didn’t get an opportunity to defend herself against the charges.

The court found that she was wasting time, and ruled against her request to summon her witnesses through the media.

Nyanzi is accused of using her social media pages to insult the president and his late mother.
