Kampala - A nude video of Dr Stella Nyanzi went viral on social media on Monday, has shocked many Ugandans.
Dr Stella, a lecturer at the Makerere Institute of Social Research (MISR) was protesting against what she termed as illegal eviction from her office.
According to Daily Monitor, Dr Stella’s office was locked by MISR’s executive director, Professor Mahmood Mamdani after she failed to honour an agreement she signed in 2012 to teach MISR’s PhD students.
However, on her Facebook page which was temporarily deactivated by the Uganda Communication Commission (UCC) after she posted a nude video of herself, the lecturer accused Mahmood of manipulation and oppression.
Her actions prompted the State minister for Ethics, Father Simon Lokodo to order for her arrest.
In response, Stella replied: “Father Lokodo I'm strong not scared of any arrest. I'm not begging you to understand my action. I did it because of fighting for my justice.?#PrayForJustice? ?#pray? for ?#stella?.”
Shortly after, she was granted access to her office.
