Museveni pair of buttocks?

Stella Nyanzi, a women’s rights activist has been arrested and taken to court for calling the president a “pair of buttocks”. The guardian has written a great article on it. Never be fooled that Uganda is anything more than an oppressive, corrupt, dictatorship.

“The Facebook post over which Nyanzi was charged read: “That is what buttocks do. They shake, jiggle, shit and fart. Museveni is just another pair of buttocks … Ugandans should be shocked that we allowed these buttocks to continue leading our country.”

Don’t worry, they’re not going to arrest a mzungu for re-posting something like this :p

    Hi Nick,

    This story is shocking! Living in New Zealand, it’s so hard to believe this sort of thing goes on in the world.

    I’m very relieved you are not going to be arrested for reposting the story!

    I love your blog. You and Tessa are doing an amazing job with what you are doing in Uganda, and educating and entertaining us as well. The world needs more inspirational people like you.

    Cheers, Hayley (A friend of your dear Mum, Sharyn)

      Thanks Hayley. It is hard to believe even for us living here. Even the newspapers here often have a go at Musevini, its just that this women is becoming quite popular so is probably seen as a bit of a threat who needs to be put in her place :/

    Not good. I love her mischievous look in the dock, though! The contrast between the two photographs are a kind of commentary in themselves.
