Nyanzi was arrested at Nakasero Market within Kampala city, on Wednesday alongside businessmen Godfrey Katongole and Isaac Newton for allegedly behaving in a manner that was likely to inconvenience other people and disregarding guidelines put in place to control the spread of COVID-19.
The defense team led by Isaac Ssemakadde has lined up 19 witnesses including doctors, professors and religious leaders. Kamasanyu has summoned the witnesses to appear in court following an application by Nyanzi’s lawyer.
Buganda Road Grade one Magistrate Gladys Kamasanyu ordered Nyanzi to start preparing her defense arguing that prosecution through their three witnesses have been able to prove the ingredients of the charges against her.
However, appearing before Justice Lydia Mugambe of High Court Civil Division, Nyanzi through her lawyer Isaac Ssemakadde told court to reject the affidavit of Abunyang which the University is using to challenge its failure to pay Nyanzi all her emoluments arising from the illegal suspension.
