The professor, who is also a vocal critic and activist against the ruling government, was arrested last week on charges of insulting President Museveni's late mother on social media.

She appeared in court on Wednesday and the magistrate read the charges preferred against her.

Nyanzi is expected to return to court on November 9th for plea taking before the trial magistrate.

Last year, the vocal professor referred to Museveni, 74, as a "pair of buttocks" and was changed with offensive communication and cyber harassment. She was later released on bail.

Demand for her release

Human rights advocates and opposition politicians have condemned the unconstitutional detention of Nyanzi beyond the lawful 48 hours.

Nyanzi has been in detention since last week on November 2nd following her arrest.
