  1. They actually killed her family, what animals. Uganda is possibly the most evil place on the planet.

    1. David, as a Ugandan living in Uganda who believes gay people should be respected, I’m appalled at the fact that people out there still take as gospel truth, everything they read online and in newspapers. If the south Korean officials were to carry out even the most perfunctory of investigations, they would be able to see the fabrication her story is.

      1. How do you know, Anamika? Do you think David Kato’s murder had nothing to do with his sexuality too?

        From my (admittedly limited) knowledge of South Korea, I don’t get the impression its officials are noted for being slapdash.

    I cannot begin to surmise what it must feel like to be simultaneously hated, discriminated, bullied, tortured persecuted and might get killed because you are one of the at least 10% of the population that was born gay. This atrocity is chiefly proliferated by closeted homosexual evangelical ultra-right nut jobs, moronically insisting that homosexuality is a choice. A consoling thought: those bigots are incapable of pleasure.

  3. She’s extremely fortunate that, given the UKs former ties with Uganda, that she didn’t decide to seek asylum here. The Immigration agency would no doubt have had her on the very next plane back. Unless, of course, she could provide irrefutable proof that she was truly a lesbian and not just pretending in order to become a ‘benefit scrounger’.

    1. I should have added that I wish her the very best of luck for her future after the appallingly barbaric treatment she’s had to endure.

    2. She would be on the next plane back because no such thing has happened.
