How Stella Nyanzi Has Put Uganda Between a Rock and a Hard Place

 The words and methods this controversial figure uses to deliver her message to the government, which she considers corrupt, is being questioned, but does it mean you can't support her, asks Nicholas Sengoba for the Daily Monitor. Stella Nyanzi is a Makerere University academic and a researcher, who is known for staging nude protests and using bold language to describe what she considers a corruption government. Her latest campaign is aimed at getting President Yoweri Museveni's administration to provide free sanitary towels to students.
