An 8-year-old Ugandan girl was reportedly arrested on suspicions of lesbianism.
An 8-year-old girl was reportedly arrested in Uganda after she was caught kissing and indulging in 'sexual acts' with her female friends.
According to a Ugandan newspaper, The Monitor, a neighbour reported that the little girl often “repeatedly lured her friends to a farm near her house, where the girls would engage in inappropriate behavior with one another.” The little girl who is currently in police custody according to Catherine Wobuyaga, was said to have confessed to indulging in the act with some of her classmates.

One of the East Africa's campaigners for Amnesty International, Victor Odero, 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."
The police say they are looking into the lives of the adults around her, to see if anyone of them could have led her to such act.
Lesbianism and Homosexuality are considered criminal acts in Uganda and carry a sentence of life imprisonment if convicted.
