Buganda Road court has rejected Dr. Stella Nyanzi’s request to allow her advertise for defence witnesses. The magistrate, Ms Gladys Kamasanyu, rejected Stella Nyanzi’s request and closed the defence case on grounds that they have failed to produce witnesses.
Stella Nyanzi had requested court to grant her a one month period so that she advertises in various media for people willing to come and stand as witnesses. This was after the people she had fronted as witnesses all refused to come to court. Nyanzi had fronted 19 witnesses.
The magistrate, after closing the case, set August 1 2019 as the day for delivering her ruling on the case. Dr Stella Nyanzi is accused of insulting President Museveni and his late mother.
