Murdered Ugandan gay activist talked of threats

HE WAS known as the ”grandfather of the kuchus”, as gay people in Uganda call themselves, a brave and fiercely committed activist who led the struggle for gay rights for more than a decade.

David Kato went to jail for his beliefs, and to court, winning his greatest victory three weeks ago against a newspaper that had called for him to be hanged.

But early on Wednesday afternoon he was battered to death with a hammer in his home in Kampala, shocking the gay and human rights communities locally and abroad.
