A horrific video has surfaced online showing what appears to be two gay men being beaten to death with sticks and wooden planks by an angry mob.
The short two-and-a-half minute video shows a large angry crowd gathered around the two half-naked men huddled on the ground.
The mob proceeds to bludgeon the two victims with multiple weapons and in one horrific scene, one man’s head is split open and his brains pour out of his skull.
It is clear that at least one of the men died from his injuries and the video ends with two motionless bodies.
Police and religious figures can be seen at the crime scene, and offer no help to the victims.
According to Gay Star News:
The mob shouts, in words that could have been added later or recorded live, include ‘Homo!’ and ‘Abnormal!’
Posted on ‘uncensored reality’ video sharing site Kaotic.com on 9 December, it is unknown whether the video is recent or not.
Although the video cannot be independently verified at this time, Africa is no stranger to horrific acts of violence against LGBT people. In 2011, Uganda’s most outspoken gay rights advocate- David Kato, was beaten to death with a hammer in his rough-and-tumble neighborhood.
In the same year, a gay African man was beaten by a mob and then set on fire, according to Edge Boston.
