Kampala, Uganda | THE BLACK EXAMINER | The Kampala North Metropolitan Police are currently holding two 23-year-old male adults, apprehended while allegedly engaging in unnatural acts at a salon in Kisingiri Cell-Namirembe, Bakuli Parish, Rubaga Division, Kampala.

Their arrest took place on a rainy Friday, October 20, around 3 pm when a student sought shelter on the salon’s veranda. While there, the student heard unsettling sounds from inside the salon and decided to document the activity using their phone. The student then alerted security guards at the Total fuel station in Mengo, who promptly contacted the Bakuli police. Consequently, the two suspects were taken into custody on charges related to unnatural offenses.

The police spokesperson, Mr. Fred Enanga, highlighted that unnatural offenses, such as sodomy, are punishable crimes in the country. Since the passage of the Anti-Homosexuality Act in May 2023, the police have been diligent in apprehending individuals suspected of engaging in unnatural practices or homosexual acts. As of now, more than 12 suspects have been arrested and brought before the court between June and October 2023 on charges connected to homosexuality behaviors.

Mr. Enanga called upon the public to report any suspicious activities within their communities to the police and local authorities to ensure that individuals involved in unnatural practices face legal consequences. The Anti-Homosexuality Act, implemented by the Ugandan government in May, stipulates severe penalties, which may even include the death penalty, depending on the circumstances surrounding the offense.
