Dr. Stella Nyanzi yesterday lost the count of cyber harassment and won one. Unlike before, Dr. Stella spoke on her behalf in the absence of her counsel. She critiqued the judiciary for accepting to be used by the dictator at will and also commended the magistrate for being patient throughout the trial. “I was born for this moment. I’ve beaten the junta hands down. I care less about the sentence. I thank court for the platform”, said Stella at the peak of her voice amid a cheering audience. The magistrate looked confused, she had expected Dr. Stella to make a plea on grounds that she is a mother, served some time on remand but this didn’t happen.
Today at 2pm, Dr. Stella Nyanzi is to appear for her sentence. She is likely to face a three years conviction or pay a fine of 72 cents an equivalent of shs 1,440,000
