At least 127 people, many of some are suspected to be faggots, were arrested on Sunday night after police raided a city bar where they were allegedly engaging in gay activities, while others were smoking marijuana and other contraband substances.
The suspects were arrested during a joint police and Local Defence Unit night operation aimed at ridding Kampala of criminal elements ahead of the festive season.
The raid at the bar along Hannington Road also led to the recovery of several shisha pots and other illegal substances from the bar, which were being abused by the suspects.
After screening the suspects, two of them were released on bond, while the 125 were detained at Central Police Station and are to appear in court today.
However, the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexuals, Transgenders and Queers (LGBTQ) community in Uganda has since branded the arrest as targeted attack on their freedom, because the biggest percentage of the those arrested are gays.
While commenting about the raid, Lydia Namubiru, one of gay activists, wrote thus on social media; “It’s no longer a crime to be gay in Botswana but in Uganda, police is still raiding gays for hanging out & journalists (while ignoring calls to boycott the police for brutality against the media) are whitewashing that as a narcotics raid.”
