Nyanzi’s  sentencing to 9 months in prison comes after being found guilty of cyber harassment when she, in 2018 posted on Facebook a vulgar birthday poem dedicated to President Yoweri Museveni and his late mother Esteri Kokundeka.

Grade One magistrate Gladys Kamasanyu said she opted for the prison sentence over a cash fine because Nyanzi has shown no remorse and is not resentful of her actions.
