Dr Stella Nyanzi has run to the High Court requesting for a retrial of her cyber harrassment case againt the President, Yoweri Museveni.
Stella Nyanzi ran to the court citing unfair treatment before Buganda Road Court Magistrate, Gladys Kamasanyu. Nyanzi contends that it was unfair of the magistrate to close her trial without giving her chance to defend herself.
Through a team of lawyers led by Mr Julius Garisonga and Mr John Isabirye, Stella Nyanzi now wants the High Court to block her judgement at Buganda Road Court, scheduled for delivery on Wednesday this week and have the entire proceedings of the magistrate court revised.
Prosecution however is against the retrial saying that there was no irregularity in the way Ms Kamasanyu handled Nyanzi’s case adding that it is rather the intention of Dr Nyanzi and her lawyer Mr Isaac Ssemakadde to frustrate the delivery of the pending judgement.
The High Court will deliver its ruling on Wednesday.
