Stella Nyanzi Arrested Again in Protest over Death of Makerere Student

Activist Dr Stella Nyanzi was on Monday arrested again as Makerere University students staged a demonstration protest near parliament over the death of Emmanuel Tegu.

Dr Nyanzi, who is a former Makerere researcher, together with a handful of students carried placards seeking to enter Parliament where they sought to demand a thorough investigation into the death of the second year student of veterinary medicine who died on June 27, 2020, reportedly due to mob action.

However, the protesters were not allowed room to proceed as police confiscated their Placards and asked them to leave.

As a result, police arrested the protesters and bundled them on a waiting patrol truck.

Last week, four suspects in Tegu’s murder appeared before the Law Development Center’s magistrate court and were remanded to Sentama prison in Wakiso district.

This is the second time Dr. Stella Nyanzi is being arrested within a space one week.

Last week, Dr. Nyanzi was arrested while addressing a joint press conference with arcade owners under their umbrella body, Kampala Arcade and Traders’ Association (KATA) protesting the closure of their arcades.
