Kenya, homophobic refugees and Turkana community attacks to kill LGBTI refugees

by Paolo M. Minciotti #LGBTI twitter@gaiaitaliacom #EnglishNews


Kenya’s authorities remains silent and they don’t even say a word on LGBTI refugees killing and assaulting by homophobic refugees and local Turkana community. The sin? Being gay or lesbian or transgender people whom, according to Kenya’s human rights laws, are supposed to be protected by the country and not killed by other refugees.

Ugly incidents have happened in Kakuma camp and Nairobi – repeatedly  – the last 5th January when three LGBTI’s refugees were seriously attacked and assaulted with iron bars, sticks, and sharp objects by homophobic refugees and local Turkana community for being gay.
This is not the first time such incidents are happening and despite the killings and assaults #UNHCR-Kenya based organization remained silent about LGBTI persecutions in Kenia.

It was friday 3rd when a Sudanese refugee came outside the reception area where LGBTI refugees are hosted, and vowed to kill at least one gay refugee. UNHCR Kenya has apparently decided to ignore LGBTI people’s cries by failing to protect them from homophobic attacks and haters around Nairobi and Kakuma camp.
