Some of us have been a victim of inhuman treatment.police raided my home in 2005, took away documents and arrested my guest, beat him.
We were treated in a degrading and inhumane way. Many of us have continued to such similar injustice but no one cares such human rights violations are unacceptable We have had enough of the abuse, neglect and violence. and the government is found of denying the existences of police brutality,now the clergy are all the time demonising us. This acts are forcing homosexuals to live double not of our choice something should be done
