Two gay men were attacked by a mob after they were caught having sex in Kayole estate late last month.
The two men were beaten by the mob on the night of May 27th 2012 as they were caught in the act by passersby. One managed to escape while the other died after being stoned by a crowd of people.
According to sources, the two were food vendors in Kayole in a make shift kiosk in the sprawling estate. The deceased was the cook at the kiosk while the one who managed to escape was charged with packing and handling of the food.
Identity Kenya confirmed that the deceased’s first name was Kamau.
It is said the two have ‘been enjoying prolonged stares for month and the deceased made the first move.’ None knew the other was gay though they both identified as gay.
The two are said to have agreed to have meet up behind the Catholic Church building in Soweto estate at 8pm on the fateful day. From there, sources say, they began to have sex. The area is described as ‘deserted with bushes and a dumping site.’
In the darkness, the two were caught with passersby as they were having sex and they were beaten up after a confrontation. Later, a crowd milled around and started to stone the two men amidst insults.
The survivor is said to have been hit in the back but managed to escape as the crowd grew and bayed for their blood.
The survivor is said to be in critical condition after the beating.
‘His arms are broken and he is coughing blood and he has internal bleeding,’ according to a source who requested anonymity and who was familiar with the case.
The deceased – Kamau – it is said, was held down and beaten and later stoned to death. His body was found dumped at the dump site next to where they were caught. He had suffered severe head and body injuries.
Local police were called in the morning to retrieve the body that was taken to the City Mortuary. Report say he was buried a week later.
Kayole estate is a sprawling estate with a growing slum influence. The area is densely populated with the outlawed Mungiki sect adherents who target residents and extort money. They also dish out ‘justice’ to perpetrators of violence, disturbance or marital chaos.
The Mungiki are also alleged to have targeted effeminate men in the past with the most recent case being two gay men who were confronted by Mungiki men, abducted and locked in an building under construction as they asked for money to let them go.
