What?! 8-Year-Old Ugandan Girl Arrested For Lesbianism

An eight year old girl Ugandan girl has reportedly been arrested on suspicions of ‘lesbianism‘. She was turned over to police after she was allegedly seen kissing her female friends in Uganda.

According to local newspaper, The Monitor, Jinja Police Child Family Protection said that they arrested the girl after a neighbor saw her having “romantic relationships” with other girls her age.

The neighbor told police that the child “repeatedly lured her friends to a farm near her house, where the girls would engage in inappropriate behavior with one another.”

Catherine Wobuyaga, the officer in charge, said the minor is now in police custody. She has apparently confessed to police that she has been “involved” with fellow girls, most of whom are her classmates.

Detectives are now investigating all the adults in the girl’s life to see if one of them might have influenced the child’s decision to engage in these “illicit relationships,”

Victor Odero, Amnesty International’s East Africa Campaigner said :

“The girl should be immediately and unconditionally released if she is still in detention.
“What she needs is protection and respect for her privacy, rather than being treated as a criminal.”

Uganda has stringent laws against homosexuality.
