Audre Lorde, a radical feminist whose scholarly work I have soaked up for years inspires me to use my voice, even when I am afraid.

“When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.When we speak we are afraid that our words will not be heard or welcomed. But when we are silent, we are still afraid. So it is better to speak.” Stella Nyanzi was quoted.

She went on to ask Bebe Cool’s family member, an Auntie to her called Susan Bidandi Ssali, as quoted ” what were you doing in Bukedde apologizing to the public for my nudity? Who sent you? Were you doing damage control or what? Why? Was it because you love us so much that you were helping to cleanse us from your perceived sense of the shame and disgrace facing us? Why didn’t you come and ask me if that is what I wanted? Did you ever apologise to the foreign public for the time you were found abroad when insane and stark naked because of schizophrenia? Why did you feel the need to undo what I am doing? Auntie Susan Bidandi Ssali,”
