Dr. Nyazi, who is a prominent academic, police said was arrested on Saturday.
Her sin according to reports from Uganda was her condemnation of the first lady(pictured) after the government reneged on a campaign pledge to supply free sanitary pads to schoolgirls struggling to afford hygiene products.

Police said Nyanzi was taken into custody on Friday and would appear in court Monday in Kampala on charges of cyber harassment and offensive communication under a 2011 law governing computer misuse.

“She kept posting issues, fighting battles on social media which we think does not serve her interests or ours,” several reports quoted the country’s police PRO as saying in a statement.
