Ugandan authorities have arrested a prominent academic for alleged social media criticism of
the wife of President Yoweri Museveni.

Stella Nyanzi was said to criticise Janet Museveni, the country’s education minister, on Facebook.

This was after the government reneged on a campaign pledge, to supply free sanitary pads to schoolgirls struggling to afford hygiene products.

Nyanzi would appear in court on Monday in Kampala on charges of cyber harassment and offensive communication, under a 2011 law governing computer misuse in the country.
