Two women suspected to be lesbians have been arrested by Tanzania police after a video involving the two sharing intimate kisses and embracing each other at a party went viral on social media.

According to police report, one of the suspects presented a ring to the  other after a long hug.

Homosexuality is a criminal offence in the East African nation, where a conviction for having “carnal knowledge of any person against the order of nature” can carry a life sentence.

Geita police chief Mponjoli Mwabulambo told Reuters on Saturday that the women were under police custody over the video clip, and that more details would be issued after the investigation was concluded.
