A controversial academic and activist in Uganda Stella Nyanzi, on Friday refused to accept bail stating that she preferred to remain behind bars and teach the other inmates how to use Facebook.
The current case against her is for insulting the dead mother of President Yoweri Museveni in a Facebook post.
Incidentally, her reason for refusing bail was to allow her teach inmates of the prisons how to use Facebook, local media portals quoted her as saying.
“What are they investigating – that Yoweri Museveni is still offended? I will go and be with those ladies in Luzira [Prison] teaching them how to write on Facebook.
“When they are released they can write as much as I do. As a writer… A poetess… writing to a broad group of people, I write criticising the regime” Nyanzi said.
