PMM Girl’s Deputy Head Teacher, Partner Remanded to Prison

Lydia Mukoda, the Deputy Headteacher of PMM Girls school, and her partner, Martha Naigaga have appeared in court on charges of gross indecency and procurement of gross indecency. The two love birds appeared before the Jinja Grade One Magistrate, Yafesi Ochieng on Tuesday but declined to plead to the charges leveled against them.

Ochieng remanded the accused persons to Kirinya prisons until March 14th, 2023 since both the state prosecutors and defense lawyers were not in court.  The two were picked up early this week for their alleged involvement in lesbianism. Mukoda, alias “Elly Ogwang,” is reported to have been involved in lesbianism with Naigaga and others still at large contrary to section 148 of the penal code act.

It provides that “any person who whether in public or private, commits acts of gross indecency with another or procures another to commit any act of gross indecency with him or her or attempts to procure the commission of any such act by any person with himself or herself or with another person, whether in public or private commits the offense and is liable to imprisonment for seven years.”

Mukoda was arrested following last week’s protests by parents and old students of PMM girl’s school, who stormed the school accusing her of recruiting students in lesbianism. Following her arrest, police also picked up her female partner, Naigaga, a timber dealer in Walukuba who accused her of abandoning her for younger school girls.

Naigaga told police that they had spent five years in a same-sex relationship and they were living a quiet life in Walukuba until last year when she recieved reports of Mukoda’s involvement of school girls in lesbian activities.

This prompted a team of detectives to visit three lodges in Buwenge town council, in Jinja district where Mukoda was allegedly engaging in lesbianism with school girls and other women from different walks of life. Until the police raid, different lodge owners who spoke to URN on condition of anonymity said that they knew Mukoda as “Mr. Elly Ogwang,” a prominent male client, and most of them were shocked to see her wearing a skirt for the first time.
