8-yr-old Ugandan girl arrested for lesbianism
An 8-year-old Ugandan girl has been reportedly arrested after being caught kissing her female friends in Uganda.
According to Uganda’s Jinja Police Child Family Protection, the minor was arrested after a neighbour caught her having “romantic relationships” with other girls of her age.
The neighbour reportedly informed the police that the child “repeatedly lured her friends to a farm near her house, where the girls would engage in inappropriate behaviour with one another.”
Catherine Wobuyaga, who is the officer in charge, disclosed that the minor is now in police custody and has confessed her involvement with fellow girls, most of whom are her classmates, to the police.
Following the reports, the police are currently investigating all the adults in the life of the minor who may have had this kind of influence on her life.
Meanwhile, Amnesty International’s East Africa Campaigner, Victor Odero, is shocked by the news and demands the minor’s immediate release.
