Dear all,
I`m happy that I`m home but would like to tell you that my life is in danger, the police men and religious people are after my neck, this morning two police officers came in my house searched me and took me to the police station and asked me a lot of question, such as who is paying me to do what I`m doing, what is my intention, and if I want to turn Tanzania into a Homosexual nation. The are holding my Passport, The laptop and a camera and mobile phone. They are trying to find out who are the supporter of the movement.
The pictures are still in the camera I had not put them on my computer. They let me go at 8:00 PM on conditions.
1. Not to organize anything for Gay, Lesbians or any Homosexual group.
2. Stop mobilizing People to become Gay.
3.Stop paying people to become Homosexuals,
4. they are going to do a close follow up on me and see everything I do.
I told them I am Gay and did not chose to be Gay, my rights should be protected, I need to live a happy life like they (POLICE) do, I will not stop the good fight.
I request my friends to be very careful, I will always be at the front.
