Six Men Have Been Arrested In Uganda Over A Video Of Them Having Sexual Intercourse.

Police in Jinja City, Uganda have arrested six men on allegations of engaging in homosexuality after their video recording went viral on social media.

Their arrest comes after a 17-second video clip of the four having sex surfaced on various social media platforms.

According to police, two young men's faces are visible in the video, while the other two are hidden.

Kiira Region Police Spokesperson James Mubi told local media outlets on Friday that they have six men in custody about the video.

"We arrested six men from Mpumudde Ward, Northern Division, Jinja City using our intelligence; we found them in one room," Mubi said.


Mubi claims that "three of the men serve the purpose of being women" and that lubricants, among other fetishes, were found in their room.

Mubi went on to say that the Force is looking for more suspects because they believe the ring is large.

"I am asking the public for help in identifying other suspects.

"The police are doing their job, and the public should do the same," he said, adding that the suspects will be brought to court at any time.

Their arrest brings the total number of suspects arrested for same-sex relationships to eight.


The arrest comes hours after President Museveni on Thursday described gay people as "deviants" and called for an investigation into homosexuality as MPs prepare to vote on the anti-LGBT bill again.
