Stella Nyanzi, the outspoken Makerere University researcher was as bitter as bile yesterday Sunday 19th as she was barred from leaving the country by the Uganda Police.
Mr Jacob Siminyu the spokesperson of the internal affairs ministry under the immigration said they received instructions to stop her from traveling since she has pending police cases. Both her passport and boarding passes were confiscated,Nyanzi said before being escorted out of the airport.
When contacted, Doctor Stella said she could not understand why she had been held from traveling around the world. “I am a poor woman who cannot afford to top up the air ticket because my flight was booked by Amsterdam university who paid for the ticket for the international conference where i was supposed to be a key note speaker this Sunday afternoon”,she said on telephone.
However news reaching the Enewsug desk say doctor Stella is being questioned following her acerbic Facebook posts in which she attacked both president Museveni and first lady Janet for allegedly running down Uganda. Police did not refer any immediate charges on her or announce the next course of action. We keep our fingers crossed for you mama Stella.
