Uganda Police are hunting for Elizabeth Kobusingye a resident of Wamala Kinyarwanda Village in Nansana Town Council Wakiso District over Homosexuality/Lesbian Offences.
It is alleged that Kobusingye a mother of four has been working hand in hand with some of the LGBTQ Non-Governmental organizations which advocates for the rights of Homosexuals in Uganda.
In Uganda, the vice is illegal according to Uganda Anti-Homosexuality/Lesbianism Act 2023 of the Penal Code.
Kobusingye 25 was on 29th, September, 2023 arrested from her home located in Wamala Kinyarwanda Nansana Municipality after a tip off from the community that she has been staying with a number of young girls in her home.
According to the Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson Patrick Onyango, Kobusingye was arrested after her neighbours informed authorities that they had suspecious people promoting homosexuality in their area.
She was charged with homosexuality offences on case number Ref; 18/29/9/23
She was later released on 3rd October 2023 on police bond and ordered to appear before the OC/CID at Mutundwe Police post on 10th, October, 2023 at 11:00 Am.
However, Kobusingye never reported back to Police to honour her bond conditions and she has been on a run since then.
“She is wanted in courts of law to answer charges pressed against her after our investigations” Onyango said.
Kobusingye’s male partner who preferred anonymity due of the sensitivity of the matter, told this news website that he got to know that his wife was dealing with homosexuals in early 2023 and he had to call off their marriage, because even his relatives had already got the information.
“The decision to leave her was painful since I loved her so much but I had nothing to do. I couldn’t stay with an evil person. She confessed right in my face that over the years she had grown love for fellow women and men were no longer her thing,” he further recalled.
