  1. This is just disgusting. I have no words, really. I just hope those people get caught and get what they deserve.

  3. Thank you, Mr Togue and Ms Nkom, for your very brave work protecting human rights.

    I’m not a religious person, but Jesus said of false prophets that “by their fruits you shall know them”

    I think we can all judge what kind of people threaten children to intimidate an adult.

    Moreover, Mr Togue and Ms Nkom are providing a service to Cameroon, for which all citizens should all be grateful, regardless of their views on homosexuality: they are offering a legal defence to people accused of a crime, which is a fundamental responsibility in a democracy, regardless of the nature of the crime or the guilt of the accused.

    I agree this is absolutely disgusting and appalling treatment of two people who are doing much good.

    Now I’ve a question of Pink News – why when I viewed this article is their a top banner ad for Holidays in Kenya?

    Holiday in Kenya ads on a Gay/LGBT Website?

  5. On in the minds of the most delusional, demented and ignorant of filthy swines is being LGBT WORSE than killing people.

    Anyone care to guess where the simple-minded freaks get their ideas from?

    Some one should make a documentary on the sort of (so-called) Christians that make death threats and carry out acts of violence. In some countries it seems to be acceptable.
