Woman Arrested For Gay Kiss In Tanzania: The authorities are continuing their “unlawful witch hunt” against the country’s LGBT community.

On Dec 4, 2017 Newnewnext.com reported: A Tanzanian woman could be facing jail time after a video of her kissing another woman, and presenting her with a ring, went viral on social media.

“I can confirm that a Tanzanian woman is under police custody over that video clip. We will issue more details later after we conclude our investigation,” Geita police chief Mponjoli Mwabulambo told Reuters.
