You are not alone – Stella Nyanzi Uganda’s rudest writer

They say I am insane because I publicly speak truths that angels dare not whisper.

Stella Nyanzi

Stella Nyanzi’s words are searing, she plans to topple a dictator with them.  She was imprisoned for her poem on facebook that called the President of Uganda, Museveni, a diseased foetus that should not have been born.  Her 18 months in prison have made her bolder, angrier and more determined to create change in Uganda.
