At her sentencing for harassing #Ugandan dictator Yoweri Museveni, feminist academic & activist Dr. Stella Nyanzi -who appeared via a screen - staged a nude protest & shouted “fuck you fuck you.” She is a revolutionary engaging in the “radical rudeness” of anti-colonial activists
This is the poem which landed Stella Nyanzi in prison. She posted it on Facebook to coincide with the birthday of Museveni who has ruled for +30yrs africanexponent.com/post/10524-the… h/t @rerutled #FreeStellaNyanzi #RadicalRudeness
Yoweri, they say it was your birthday yesterday.

How bitterly sad a day!

I wish the smelly and itchy cream-coloured candida festering in Esiteri's cunt had suffocated you to death during birth.

Yoweri, they say it was your birthday yesterday!

How morbidly grave a day!

I wish that Esiteri's cursed genitals had pushed out a monstrously greenish-bluish still-birth.

You should have died at birth, you dirty delinquent dictator...
