Tanzanian AIDS Activist Brutally Murdered, Body Found In Home

Identity Kenya is reporting on the horrific murder of Tanzanian AIDS activist Maurice Mjomba, whose decomposing corpse was discovered last week.

According on an eyewitness, Mjomba, 32, was found in his home in Dar es Salaam, “slumped on a couch with his mouth and nose shut lid with a tape.” His hands were tied behind his back and he had been beaten severely. “It seems his private parts were injured as there was a lot of blood coming out of them,” said the source.

Apparently the stench from Mjomba’s house became so bad that neighbors called police to investigate/

Mjomba, who went missing last Saturday, was a sexual-health educator and HIV/AIDS coordinator in his homeland, located in East Africa near Kenya and Uganda, where legislators have tried to codify violence against gays and lesbians.
