- Uganda's President Yoweri Museveni warned against campaigns supporting the rights of homosexuals in the country.
- Homosexual acts are already illegal in Uganda.
A female teacher of a girls' School in Jinja City in Uganda has been arrested for allegedly promoting lesbianism in school.
According to a Ugandan publication Daily Monitor, Kiira regional police spokesperson James Mubi said that the suspect was arrested after complaints from her lesbian partner.
Her partner complained that the suspect was cheating on her with school girls and recruiting other students.
"Her alleged Lesbian partner, a 30-year-old, surrendered to police. We have the couple in our custody. The partner claims the teacher has been cheating on her and not providing her with basic needs," he said.
"But the suspect testified to police that she rented a house for her partner and set up for her timber business and she disputed allegations of not providing basic needs to her alleged lesbian partner," Mubi added.
Mubi said that the suspect confirmed her relationship with her partner.
He added the two have been arrested and taken to court pending investigations.
Uganda's President Yoweri Museveni has before warned against campaigns supporting the rights of homosexuals in the country.
Homosexual acts are already illegal in Uganda.
The president termed gay rights as "nonsense" during remarks made on Wednesday at a graduation ceremony at the National Defence College.
The president said:
"Don't bring any more nonsense here... We were in Washington, [and] this time the Americans organised the meeting well because they didn't bring up these issues. They concentrated on business which was good. They didn't bring up issues about homosexuality. But if they would have brought those we would have had problems."
