Opposition stalwart Col Dr Kizza Besigye has today been blocked by Luzira prison officials from accessing his strong die-hard also a social activist, Dr Stella Nzanzi.

According to officials from Luzira Maximum prison where Nzanzi has been for nearly two weeks, they could not allow Besigye to check on her because Friday is not a visiting day for inmates and that they could only allow him if he could get clearance from above.

“We can only allow you inside if you get clearance from Prisons headquarters,” officials told Besigye.

After an incident, Besigye took to his twitter handle and said; “Tried and failed to visit Dr Stella Nyanzi, a Prisoner of Conscience, at Luzira Prison. My thoughts with her and her family.”

Dr Nyanzi is in Luzira on two counts including cyber harassment contrary to section 24 (1)(2)(a) of the Computer misuse Act 2011 and offensive communication contrary to section 25 of the Computer Misuse Act 2011.

This was after he allegedly insulted president Museveni on facebook by calling him ‘pair of Buttocks.’
