Kenya: Gay Couple Trapped, Beaten and Arrested

Two University gay students were on Monday night found in the act by villagers of Nyamage village, Kisii County -western kenya.

Locals say that they have been knowing that the two were gay and they set a trap that night.
"They have been disturbing us here with their noises and every time we question them they become rude. That is how we decided to lay a trap and get hold of them," said Ms Everlyne Kwamboka, their neighbour.

The angry residents started beating the two up but a good Samaritan who is an official at Kisii university rescued them.
Victor Nyambega a local, said that the two have been in a relationship for two years now.
"We have been seeing them for sometimes now. They behave like women especially the one playing the lady role," he said.

Mr Hezron Bogonko, a security officer in the university arrested the two before handing them over to the guidance and counselling department in the school.

An official in the school who requested for anonymity as he is not supposed to speak to the media said that the two will not be arraigned in court.
"The two will undergo proper counselling to help them overcome this kind of lifestyle. I don't believe taking them to court will help," he said.

It should be noted that LGBT persons in Kenya continue to face discrimination, denial of services, gender bases violence, arbitral arrests, disowned by their families among others all basing from their sexual orientation & expressions. This has led many to seek asylum in neighboring countries due to fear to be persecuted & also fearing for their lives. However, even in the neighboring countries life isn't much different as the host communities too are homophobic and hostile.

COSIR is in efforts of advocating for Sexual Orientations, Gender Identities and Expressions to promote Equality, diversity & inclusion. This is done through community sensitization and awareness interactive forums regularly held in localities where majority of LGBT refugees & asylum seekers reside.
