Anti-gay hysteria has gripped an all-boys school in Uganda after two male pupils were allegedly discovered having sex.
According to local media, the incident at the Ntare School in Mbarara led to fellow students attempting to lynch the boys and forced the school to shut down.
Teachers intervened and were able to save the pupils from further violence.
The school’s headmaster, Jimmy Turyagyenda, has insisted that the fracas took place after the boys were accused of theft and that it had nothing to do with sexual acts.
Students, however, claim that he is trying to protect the school and that the two boys were “caught engaging in unnatural sex”.
