Kenyan police brutally battered LGBT+ refugees and lobbed teargas bombs in an attack that led to four in a coma today, activists on the ground have claimed. Moreover, the organisation said that “five persons have returned to the reception centre to access these registration services.” For days, rainbow refugees staying at the Kakuma camp un-rolled mats outside the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees to peacefully protest the “unclean” conditions of the camp and ask to be allowed to live in the capital city of Nairobi. But activists reported that camp law enforcement descended upon them, described as “death squads” by one protester, to “bludgeon” them. “[They] want us dead,” alleged one trans protester.
