Zambia Police Hunt 'Gay Couple'

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

Zambia's police spokesperson has appealed to the public to share information about two women believed to be in a same-sex relationship, news site Zambia Reports says.

A picture of the two women has been circulating on social media.

However, it is not entirely clear why police have decided the pictures suggest they are in a same-sex relationship.

The deputy health minister Hamisi Kigwangalla warned last year those who advertised homosexual activities online would be targeted.

Ester Katongo said the police's cybercrime unit have launched an ongoing investigation.

Same-sex relationships are illegal in the country, with those found guilty risking jail time of up to 14 years.

Katongo said, should the two women be found guilty, the sentence would not be less than seven years.
