    No word on the trial of his alleged murderer Enock Nsubuga?

      Pink News could perhaps use its investigative journalism

      The silence freaks me out. Case was committed to the High Court but it is now over 4 months and no progress.

        Like with the Ssempa trial, though GayUganda managed to find out and post some stuff about that.

    It was a lovely day, but I was disappointed by the people in the crowd who talked through the speech and carried on talking through the minute’s silence.

    Our councillor also mentioned that he’d sat next to a Ugandan government minister and that he’d spoken to her about David Kato and about the anti-gay bill. As a city we will be keeping the pressure on her for him.

    1. Wow well done york for putting gay rights before partying. Shame on London

    2. That was a shame! But the respect of the rest helped make it a noteworthy tribute and I’m proud we made it into the PinkNews headlines!

        Yeah, the way everyone else reacted made up for it. You lot did us proud :)

        (Although I do love the fact that the biggest cheer of the day seemed to be when they finally got that balloon out!)

    He went to Hell, finally!

    1. Pink News editors this hate speech is continually allowed on this site. You have a responsibility to ensure that these comments are appropriate.

      These is absolutely no reason why Rich should be allowed to post on this site.

      Can you let me know why he has not been banned

  4. It is tragic that a person like David Kato can escape a life of oppression, become educated in another country and experience the life style opportunities the world has to offer only to return home with hopes and dreams be resisted and have their life cut short. Some of us truly can’t imagine how fortunate we are for our birth country.
