The former Deputy Head teacher of PMM Girls School in Jinja City, Ms Lydia Mukodha has been released on bail after spending two months on remand following her arrest over lesbianism.
Ms Mukodha together with her alleged lesbian partner, Ms Martha Naigaga, are facing charges of gross indecency and procurement of gross indecency.
The Jinja Grade One Magistrate Agnes Musiime released them, saying they had spent more than 60 days on remand.
The suspects were remanded on March 3 to Kirinya Prison in Jinja City. They had thereby spent 67 days on remand by the time they got bail.
Ms Musiime said the accused also presented two sureties and Court found both of them substantive.
She, however, restricted Ms Mukodha from accessing PMM Girls School, saying she might interfere with the evidence of the would-be witnesses.
Court thereafter ordered Ms Mukodha to surrender her identity card, which she will receive when the case is disposed of.
The suspects were released on a cash bail of Shs500,000 each and Shs300,000 non-cash for each surety.
Ms Mukodha‘s sureties include her father, a former teacher at PMM Girls School, and her brother Michael Waiswa.
