Stella Nyanzi has said that she feels like a fugitive in her own country. She however notes that she will not be intimidated into silence.
In a Facebook post , the controversial Makerere University lecturer said she cannot move freely and does not have access to her home because security goons still await for her out there.
Ms Nyanzi was charged with calling President Museveni “a pair of buttocks”, but this has not stopped her from taking another dig at him and the NRM government:
She says: Our nation is now a prison. Perhaps I was safer and freer behind bars in Luzira. Uganda is a dangerous place to live in, particularly for those of us who reject the illegitimate leadership of the despotic leopard. Read her full post below
I am now a fugitive in my own country. Although I was released from prison on bail, I cannot go back to my own home because the dictatorial regime’s security goons still await for me there. I cannot live with my children because they were evacuated from our home and now live hidden from my assailants. I cannot move about freely because the goons are looking for me.
I cannot make a phone call without hearing their tapping machines eavesdropping. My family, friends and allies who are looking out for my safety are so fearful of the despotic regime’s punitive and vengeful abilities that they do not allow me to live freely. What liberty is this if a mother cannot live with her children?
Uganda’s Criminal Investigation Department is full of criminals who make up charges, doctor evidence like magicians, tell lies while under oath, and work with mask-wearing rogues in the FFU who brutally kidnap their targets. Rather than summon individuals to the police stations for statement-taking, these criminals masquerading as investigators trail their victim all over the land, and put trails even on close relatives. When they fail to get their targets, these goons abduct and detain their young children and other dependants. Who will clean the police from these deep stains from the despotic regime?
Our nation is now a prison. Perhaps I was safer and freer behind bars in Luzira. Uganda is a dangerous place to live in, particularly for those of us who reject the illegitimate leadership of the despotic leopard, its foolish leopardess and the future reign of the promiscuous leopard-cub. The leopards want to shut the mouths of those of us who refuse their continued misrule of Uganda. When we refuse to shut up, to cut out our dissenting tongues, the leopards use heavy state-machinery to cause us to fear. I refuse this intimidation into silence.
I refuse to stop poking the leopards’ anuses. I am going to continue poke-poking all the leopards’ anuses until either Uganda is free from the leopards or my death.
