BREAKING UGANDAN ACTIVIST ATTACKED BY MOB TAKEN TO INTENSIVE CARE
By Melanie Nathan, November 28, 2014.
A Ugandan human rights defender and activist known in the LGBT community has been brutally attacked today by a mob and rushed to a Kampala emergency hospital.
After a loss of blood, from what seems like multiple injuries, including a badly injured eye, Kelly Mukwano, was administered first aid, collapsed and was sent to intensive care, where he is currently stabilized and undergoing treatment.
Kelly has been subject to persecution by police with several arrests. After an October arrest, he described his ordeal with police as “the most trying moment of my life.”
