Activist: 'I have not offended the president'

A Ugandan rights activist has denied charges of attempting to "disturb the peace, quiet or privacy" of President Yoweri Museveni through a Facebook post in which she called him a "pair of buttocks".

Appearing in  court in the capital, Kampala, Stella Nyanzi said she was not guilty of cyber harassment:

Your honour, I write a lot on my social media. I use metaphors in my writing. I am a writer and I use language as a tool. I have called His Excellency a rapist of the constitution. I have called him impotent. All those are metaphors. However, your honour, I am not guilty of cyber harassment.
In response to the charge of "computer misuse", Ms Nyanzi said:

Your honour, I have not offended the president. Ugandans are the ones who are offended. He makes promises to provide sanitary pads to girls and he doesn't deliver them. But, your honour, I am not guilty of computer misuse."
