• Sheila Lumumba was allegedly killed by 6 men who had broke into her home in Karatina.
• Human rights activist, Njeri Wa Migwi, mourned the late Sheila Lumumba as a beautiful soul.
This is a terrible article to write. But it must be done to raise awareness on the issue of gay rights in Kenya. A lady called Sheila Lumumba was allegedly murdered by a pack of 6 men for the simple reason that she was gay.
The sad news has gone viral with prominent human rights activist, Njeri Wa Migwi, even speaking about it on her Facebook timeline.
"I just spoke to Sheila's Lumumba best friend today, and we cried together. Today Sheila is dead, six men broke into her house and gang-r*ped her, further broke her leg according to the autopsy and killed this beautiful beautiful human in Karatina town," Njeri started out in her post.
A heartbroken Njeri would add that she hoped the late Sheila would haunt the people who had done the dastardly deed to her.
"Why? Because she was a lesbian. My heart is beyond broken. Sheila don't rest, if you don't get justice don't rest babe, do not give them rest, curse them, that blood that you shed curse them, may they never know peace. May your blood follow them, from the raising of the sun and to the setting of the sun. Curse them. Haunt them, don't let them rest, don't let know peace. Haunt them."
She finished by declaring that even the lives of gay women matter.
"I hate it here. . Y'all hate women. Y'all kill us every day and at every chance. Queer women's lives matter. Your life mattered Sheila."
May Sheila's soul rest in peace and may the thugs who did this face the full brunt of the law.
