A volunteer for the LGBT advocacy group Integrity Uganda was found beheaded on a farm during a search for a missing priest.
Jim Burroway of Box Turtle Bulletin points to the Anglican blog Changing Attitude, which says that searchers found the head of Pasikali Kashusbe in a pit latrine on the farm of Badru Kiggundu, the electoral commission chairman, in Makindye Sabagabo, Wakiso District. They were looking for the Rev. Henry Kayizzi Nsubuga, who disappeared last month after delivering a sermon supporting gay people.
“Judith Nabakooba, a police spokesperson, identified the head as that of Pasikali Kashusbe, one of the workers on Kigggundu’s farm and a member of Integrity Uganda,” reports Changing Attitude. “Pasikali and his partner Abbey are youth workers with Integrity Uganda charged with the responsibility of mobilising young LGBT people in activities which build community capacity to face up to the challenge of homophobia, especially in the area of attitude change and care through drama and sports activities.”
According to Changing Attitude, Pasikali disappeared almost four weeks ago when Uganda celebrated Martyrs Day. A mutilated torso found earlier in the week about half a kilometer from the farm is believed to be Pasikali’s. The torso was that of a man and had no genitals.
Details on suspects and arrests remain vague, according to Box Turtle Bulletin, which included the following video report from NTV Uganda.
