Female Activist Who Was Charged For Calling Uganda President 'Pair Of Buttocks' Collapse In Court

The bail hearing for the Ugandan activist who is charged in connection with calling President Yoweri a "pair of buttocks" has been adjourned for 20 minutes because Ms Nyanzi collapsed as she tried to get up, the BBC's Patience Atuhaire reports. She was helped up and led away by prisons officers 
One of her lawyers told Patience that Ms Naynzi has been diagnosed with malaria. Her lawyers are arguing that she needs to be released on bail to get medical attention.
The case has been seen as a test for the boundaries of freedom of speech in the country.
People are sharing pictures of some of her supporters outside the court.
