Oklahoma City University officials just announced that a free public presentation featuring Sister Rosemary Nyirumbe, the humanitarian leader from Uganda, has been postponed.

According to the university's communications team, Nyirumbe encountered unexpected difficulties traveling out of Uganda. She was to speak at OCU, 2501 N Blackwelder, on Wednesday, Sept. 23.

"OCU officials are working with Sister Rosemary and the Sewing Hope Foundation to reschedule her visit to our campus for later this fall," the university said in a news release.

"Details about the new schedule will be posted at www.okcu.edu/SisterRosemary as soon as they are available."

Nyirumbe, one of Time magazine's 100 Most Influential People of 2014, was set to discuss her efforts to help young girls and women
rescued from the notorious and brutal warlord Joseph Kony and his Lord's Resistance Army.
