    The big crime underlying all of this is that there are virtually no police, so people, particularly young men, are killed rather than be charged to face a judge and jury. People who do petty crimes are also killed. Although you see one horrible act by one person, look at all the dismayed and horrified people standing around helplessly. They are Kibera, too. .

    Do you know who the photographer was? Or are you aware of where this was first published?


    • kibera life December 23, 2013 at 9:48 am #

      yes i was the photographer and if you need more you can contact me. These are the worst scenes we see in Kibera and much more that break the heart.

        Kevin, its hard to comprehend the pure hatred here. Did you find out the alleged reason why the residents harboured so much hatred towards this man that he was burnt to death, and did someone actually set him alight while still alive?


      • kibera life December 23, 2013 at 1:20 pm #

        yes the fire is set when the person is alive, there are many such scenes here in the slum when people are burnt alive as the crowd watch.

        It appears that this photo is now making the rounds on Facebook via an IMGUR.COM upload story stating “Gay person burned alive by anti-gay mob in Uganda for all to see.” (refer

        I am not doubting your statement of being the photographer of this photo, but do you have proof of date/time/location? Any local news stories published regarding the incident?


      • kibera life December 24, 2013 at 4:03 am #

        Yes i have all the details, the picture was taken in kibera slum, Nairobi Kenya.

    This photo is currently being posted on facebook and imgur as being shot in Uganda and depicting a gay person being burned.


    • kibera life December 23, 2013 at 3:33 pm #

      yes the world has turned crazy and people don’t fear killing their fellow human beings.

    As a Ugandan I would really appreciate it if someone cleared the air about what exactly happened in this picture so that it can stop circulating around the internet that Ugandans killed this person.

    Hey! I just wanted to know if you could give me some specific details of this picture, like date, or if there was some news about this crime? It will be only for my personal use. I won’t publish it elsewhere.


    • kibera life February 27, 2014 at 4:46 am #

      i thought i gave the description of this picture, i wrote some explanation down the picture.

    Was the man gay? I think that is what people are trying to clear up because of the other story. You didn’t specify what his “crime” was.

    When did you take this image?

    I see white fellows calling us barbaric and going all sorry for the burned guy. U will never understand the pain of losing the little you’ve toiled for to some lazy idiot who will not even hesitate to stick a knife in you, without caring a second how your kids will fair afterwards, and they use it on booze. These people make living a terrifying exercise so why the heck should I hesitate to torch them? I have been robbed, not once, not twice… and given a chance, i could light the fire, ever so slowly so that the goons die a very slow, very painful death.

    This picture was taken in Kenya. NOT UGANDA. It had nothing to do with gay people.
    This was in Kibera – where unfortunately, you find many of these cases. This is not the first time someone was torched to death and it definitely wont be the last in this slum.

    Uganda has never and has NOT killed anyone because they are gay.
    No one can bring forth a single case of someone killed in Uganda because they are gay.

    I think the killing of David Kato, gay rights activist, in Uganda, is proof of the danger of being openly gay in Uganda:

      I think it is clear that this comment stream is an effort to identify the photographer and the location. That has been done. It is from KIBERA, a slum in NAIROBI, KENYA. Before you go into rights of gay people in Uganda, which is heinous, remember that AFRICA IS NOT A COUNTRY.
