UGANDA: Gay Activist Found Beheaded

The severed head of LGBT activist Pasikali Kashusbe has been found in a Uganda latrine. Via Box Turtle Bulletin:
Judith Nabakooba, a police spokesperson, identified the head as that of Pasikali Kashusbe, one of the workers on Kigggundu’s farm and a member of Integrity Uganda. Pasikali and his partner Abbey are youth workers with Integrity Uganda charged with the responsibility of mobilising young LGBT people in activities which build community capacity to face up to the challenge of homophobia, especially in the area of attitude change and care through drama and sports activities. According to the police, a mutilated torso which was earlier in the week discovered in Kabuuma Zone, about half a kilometre away from Kiggundu’s farm was probably Pasikali’s The torso was described as belonging to a young man and had no genitals. Pasikali went missing over three and half weeks ago when the country was celebrating Uganda Martyrs Day. All efforts by his partner Abbey and other family members to find him had been fruitless.
While the motive for this slaying is unclear at the moment, it should be again pointed out that American evangelists have spent the last few years fostering hatred and violence against LGBT people in Uganda.
