David Kato, LGBTI Activist, Uganda, Murdered!
On Wednesday 26 January 2011 David Kato, Ugandan gay man, activist, human rights defender, man of courage, the real McCoy – as they say, was beaten to death in his home near Kampala. He lived without trimmings, literally and metaphorically. David lived his life on the edge with no protection from the sickening homophobia unleashed by political and religious leaders in Uganda and their supporters in the US.

This "explanation" is more sophisticated, more toned down than the robbery version.

But does it reflect what actually happened? I don't really think so...

Dear Göran,

David Kato had a reputation, for lots of years, of going directly to the prisons and/or police jails to bail people out to help them--this explanation may be true in terms of ¨helping¨ someone but truthfully, where in the World would anyone be paid Money, a House, a Car for sex? The story is insane and no doubt ¨creative¨ to cover for whatever tarnish the Government, and Anglican Church, needs to brush over their vile behavior of generating hate that led to this dastardly crime in the first place--shame on them all, starting with Bishop Orombi, David Bahati, Martin Ssempa and every other religious quack that has encouraged such injustice and unholy abuse of fellow human beings.

The first version, robbery version included the story about a ¨stranger¨ that nobody had seen leaving the house--don´t you think the ¨stranger¨ would have been noticed he had been a ¨friend¨ of Davids that was staying with him? The whole batch of terrible lies/cover makes me think of the lies Ssempa and other pastors made up accusing the Archbishop of Yorks brother, Preacher Robert of sodomy (of course the ¨sodomized¨ has already confessed he was paid to lie)--more Ugandan filth that Evangelical Christians generate in the name of a God they claim to know something about--bigoted fools and powerhungry hypocrites all. I wonder where Bishop Orombi´s suck-em-up priest Erich ¨Ecclesiastical Protection¨ salesman and wife Patricia Kasirye (aka Colonel Josephine Luboyera) were during the crime? Surely they can fabric some good stories as they are very good at false witness!
