A student from Harvard University has filed a lawsuit against Uganda President Yoweri Museveni for blocking him to access his twitter handle.

Hillary Innocent has also sued Uganda spokesman Ofondo Opondo and assistant IGP Kasingye for what he terms as an illegal blocking from their handles in July and August 2019.

The Harvard University student continues by saying that the leaders have infringed his freedom of thought, conscience, and belief which is against the constitution of Uganda.

The lawsuit follows that of President Donald Trump who was accused of violating free speech by blocking critics on Twitter.

The US judge further continued by saying that top officials using twitter were not allowed to block people who disagreed with them.
