Tanzanian police are holding one of two women accused of kissing in a video widely circulated on social media.
Police chief in Tanzania's Mwanza region, Ahmed Msangi, said authorities arrested the woman in the northwestern region of Geita and are looking for the other woman and some others seen in the video.
He said the plan is to eliminate the entire chain of people involved or supporting homosexuality.
Homosexual relations are criminalized in Tanzania and the law prescribes jail terms up to life sentences.
