Following Nakabugo’s confession, Nagawa’s Islamic family launched a manhunt for her with the aim of secretly trying her under sharia law by calling the village members to stone her to death.

Ndejje university, under Anglican church of Uganda foundation with its renown position on anti-homosexuality stance, is also looking for her on behalf of the police for prosecution.

Police first arrested Nakabugo on June 5. She was subsequently detained on June 9 before being released on police bond after four days.

“The police are looking for me; my parents chased at home they want kill me and dropped out of school,” Nagawa recently told this website.

A source in Bwebajja told this investigative website that she was last seen in the area when angry residents wanted to lynch her for trying to lure their children into unnatural offenses.
