Ugandan poet Stella Nyanzi was released in February after spending over a year in prison for a post she made on Facebook that insulted President Yoweri Museveni.  Defiant, Nyanzi used her time behind bars to write a book and is inspiring others to use poetry to express their political opinions.  But as Halima Athumani reports from Kampala, Uganda’s public prosecutor plans to appeal her acquittal.
