    RIP David.

    We mourn the loss of your voice.

  5. Sad thing to happen. Beaten to death simply because you believe in the right of everyone to live without harm or discrimination. Animals have more compassion for each other that the person (or people) who did this.

  6. How could the police know so quickly that the motive was robbery?

  7. “How could the police know so quickly that the motive was robbery?”

    I’m guessing that this is their preferred “motive” as the obvious one, and hence the most likely one, of homophobic murder does them damage internationally.

  9. Evangelical (so-called) Christians have a lot to answer for.

    It looks like a case of ’round up the usual suspects’ Who knows, but I think this is actually state-inspired assassination.

    An assAult on one of us is an assault on us all, discrimination against one of us is discrimination against all.

    We SHALL overcome some day.

  11. Deeply humbling to see the sacrifices made by the likes of David Kato to the cause.
    In the UK it’s easy to get complacent about equality when the most opposition we get is the occasional fundamentalist wingnut like Stephen Green and the only remaining political hurdles are equal marriage and adoption rights.
    Far tougher to fight an entire political establishment which wants you dead.
    I hope the next generation of Ugandan gay rights activists are as brave as David Kato, and hope they fare better too.

  12. Thank you David

    Rest in PEACE
