The details in Liberty Kenya are grisly as the end is tragic.
The feature image is especially disturbing, so disturbing in fact that I thought twice about going with it. I decided that it was enough for one to find it on the Liberty Kenya site if one wanted to see it.
Suffice it to say that the mob action meted out to two gay men in Nairobi seemed so incredible to me that I had to corroborate the story before I ran with it.
The short of the report is that two men were found having sex in a public place in Nairobi, Kenya, and were beaten up badly, with one of them ending up being stoned to death by the mob that found them.
In the darkness, the two were caught with passersby as they were having sex and they were beaten up. Later, a crowd milled around and started to stone the two men amidst insults. The survivor is said to have been hit in the back but managed to escape. … The deceased was held down and beaten and later stoned to death.
Yes, they should have known better than to have sex in a public place but no one deserves to die like that. No one.
