“When a (nun) becomes pregnant, the priest insists that she have an abortion,” the report added. ‘‘The sister is usually dismissed from her congregation while the priest is often only moved to another parish — or sent for studies.”… #NunToo
“Many members of the church, experts said, suffer from a medieval mind-set and consider the priests who commit abuse against nuns to be the victims of seductive temptresses. Since the victims in these cases are adults...there is also a reflexive tendency to blame them”
Abuse is result of “a rot in clerical culture that leads priests to believe they are a higher authority,and thus entitled to do what they want with/parishioners.In developing countries, where the abuse of nuns seems more prevalent, priests tend to be put on even higher pedestals”

Feminist scholar @drstellanyanzi will appear again in court on Monday on charges of “offending” #Ugandan dictator Yoweri Museveni and his late mother. Fuck civility. Fuck politeness. Tyranny and authoritarianism are not civil nor polite.
Nyanzi faces a 1 year prison sentence if convicted for posting a poem on Facebook wishing Museveni’s mother’s birth canal had poisoned him upon birth to save #Uganda from him. The poem ends with “You Should Have Died At Birth, Oh Dirty Delinquent Dictator.” #FreeStellaNyanzi
Read this by @MKSerumaga: “A controversial scholar attacks Museveni with her incendiary pen. She is accused of bad manners. But is she more badly behaved than a regime that peels away the skin of its people?”…
E Review. #FreeStellaNyanzi

Fuck civility: feminist scholar @drstellanyanzi is on trial for “offending” Uganda's president, Yoweri Museveni. She is a proponent of "radical rudeness", a traditional Ugandan strategy for unsettling the powerful through the tactical use of public insult.…
Nyanzi was detained for 5wks in 2017 for calling Museveni a “pair of buttocks” - her least profane criticism of him. She currently faces a 1yr prison sentence if convicted for poem she posted wishing Museveni’s mother’s birth canal had poisoned him upon birth to save #Uganda.
Nyanzi’s next Court appearance is Dec 10. Her lawyer has said he hoped to be able to question President Museveni as "the first witness" to the alleged offences. "We're going to prepare to cross-examine the president on all matters concerning the vagina". #FreeStellaNyanzi

NEW: @Refugees in Uganda gets slammed by internal probe:…
With donor money, @refugees spent $14.6 million setting up Uganda’s national refugee registration system. It didn’t work. So donors had to pay another $11 million to do a new headcount.
The @refugees @UNHCRuganda office also agreed that donor money could buy a plot of land next to the Prime Minister's office in Kampala for $320,000. It's being used for parking. They paid twice the going rate, auditors found.

Yesterday I asked my followers to use #FreeBobiWine to protest the #Uganda govt torture of the pop star, charged w/treason. After nearly 24 hr stand-off at airport, midnight last night Bobi + wife were allowed to fly to Boston for medical treatment.…
Once #BobiWine reaches Boston MDs, the damage done to his body will be documented, evidence of torture. Bobi is a singer & Member of Parliament. He + 32 other opposition Parliamentarians were arrested & tortured, as #Museveni clings to his 32-yr reign of power.
The U govt allowed Bobi to leave, but his little children had to remain in Uganda to ensure Bobi's return. To appreciate why musicians & human rts activists worldwide are calling #FreeBobiWine watch his pop hit sweeping African music charts, "Freedom".

Big & exciting day today: I'm in the car with three Lord's Resistance Army defectors. We're on the way to Gulu, northern Uganda, where they'll be reunited with their families for the first time in 16 years. They look serious in this pic, but really everyone is all smiles (Thread)
They were kidnapped as children aged 9, 13 & 16, by the militia led by Joseph Kony, which was responsible for taking 10,000s of children from northern Uganda & forcing them to become child soldiers. Until this week they didn't even know their families were still alive.
They defected in Banda, northeast DRC (Democratic Republic of the Congo) a few weeks ago, & arrived in Kampala on Wednesday. Then they went through a few days of procedure & paperwork with the Ugandan government's Amnesty Commission (pic from there).
