State prosecutor demands cancellation of Stella Nyanzi’s bail

By Sania Babirye

State prosecutor Jonathan Muwaganya has asked Buganda road court to cancel the bail application of the 42 year old  Controversial Makerere university researcher Dr.Stella Nyanzi. He accuses her of breaching one of bail  conditions by attacking state prosecutor in the case via her Facebook page.

This morning Muwaganya  read a face book post that Dr. Nyanzi allegedly wrote on her Facebook page claiming that members of the bar wore unfitting Chinese coats.

Muwaganya states that any attack  on the  members of the bar is an attack on the trial court which needed immediate redress through cancelling Dr.Nyanzi’s  bail or setting more tough bail conditions.

Muwaganya says that state lawyers cannot proceed with the case under such situation where Dr.Nyanzi is continuously attacking them for doing their job.

Although court bared Dr.Nyanzi from writing or discussing any matter related to case as one of her bail conditions Dr. Nyanzi was angered on Wednesday after state prosecutor Jonathan Muwaganya told court that he was not officially served Dr.Nyanzi’s application in which she is seeking a stay of proceedings of the case until her constitution petition in which she is challenging the mental treatment act is heard and disposed.

Chief magistrate James Eremye Mawanda  has however reserved the ruling on the matter until he determines  the mental examination application.
