Makerere University don Dr. Stella Nyanzi has been let free after recording a six-hour statement at the Criminal Intelligence and Investigations Directorate, about her recent Facebook posts.

A panel of three officers from Criminal Intelligence and Investigations Directorate headed by Joseph Mbwona interrogated Dr. Nyanzi for six hours about the her posts on face book.

Before she was received by Obwona on behalf of the Director of Criminal Investigations, Nyanzi who was speaking on top of her voice, told journalists that she wanted to know who the complainant was in her Facebook posts.

After the interrogation, a happy Nyanzi said "The interaction was very professional and I want to commend the officers for such an interview, I was treated with respect, when I came, I was anxious, I was given permission to speak and I wanted to know who the complainant was which they did," Nyanzi said.

According to her, she was let go without a charge against her. Our efforts to talk to Police were futile because all the Police Public relations Officers (PROs) were attending The 6th Kigali Declaration Conference.​

 

 

 

 In May last year, Nyanzi made headlines when she stripped, protesting the closure of her office at the University's institute of social research (MISR).

The medical anthropologist was suspended from Makerere University on April 21, following the first investigation by a five member committee constituted by Vice Chancellor Prof. John Ddumba-Ssentamu. The suspension was, however, lifted after investigations.
