Meet Stella Nyanzi, The Feminist Museveni Has Failed to Silence

Despite being arrested numerous times Ugandan activist Stella Nyanzi continues to fearlessly express her views about President Yoweri Museveni's administration. On September 16, she was arrested after her Facebook post saying that Uganda would have been better off had Museveni died at birth. In 2017 she was also charged under the Computer Misuse Act of 2011 for referring to the president as "a pair of buttocks".
