The #PairOfButtocks hashtag is trending like crazy in Uganda and has spread on beyond borders since Reuters and BBC Africa has already picked it up.
It is both a form of activism and as well a hilarious way for tweeps to cope with the sad state of affairs after Dr. Stella Nyanzi, a medical anthropologist and former Makerere University researcher was arrested for calling President Yoweri Museveni and others, a “Pair of Buttocks“.
The funniest thing about it is how direct and raw the statement is, when was the last time you only honestly heard some say, “buttocks” and more over a “pair” to emphasise the point.
Probably the reason why so many people jumped on the trend is because the matter seems so trivial for the escalation of court case and remand to Luzira Prison plus a previously shadow Cyber Act.
Some of the entries we found interesting on the #PairOfButtocks train:
Didnt he refer to himself as the nani of a leopard? You would think he wouldn’t be offended when referred to as a #PairOfButtocks

This #pairofbuttocks has surely taken us off track of the most important concerns of the country.
Girls need pads, corruption still lingers.
