January 31, 2013

Police in Uganda have arrested a third youth worker on homosexuality charges, continuing their crackdown on the Youth on Rock Foundation (YRF), which runs anti-AIDS programs for LGBT youth.

Martin (Morgan) Kanyike, executive director of the foundation, was arrested Tuesday, Jan. 29, on accusations of homosexuality and recruiting people into homosexuality. He was put into a cell for about two hours, then was released on police bond, he said. He was not required to provide money in exchange for his release, Kanyike said.
