Dr. Nyanzi Has a Case to Answer – Father Lokodo

By UBC Reporter

The Minister for Ethics and Integrity Father Simon Lokodo has said that Makerere Researcher Dr. Stella Nyanzi has to answer for insulting the First Lady Janet Kataha Museveni.

Fr. Lokodo said Ms Museveni being a First Lady represents all Ugandans because she is equivalent to a mother of the nation.

He added that Dr. Nyanzi’s language infringes on the Constitutional provision which calls for respect for fellow citizens and also flouts the Anti-pornography law.

The minister observed that it is unbecoming for a mature person, an educationist and a professional to speak in such a manner.

He added that the First Lady also deserves respect from Dr. Stella Nyanzi because she is her supervisor as Minister of Education.

Dr. Nyanzi has stirred public debate as to whether she was right or wrong to use vulgarity in her infamous attack on the First lady on social media.
