John Bosco Nyombi’s shaking in his boots right now.
The British government this week informed Nyombi, an openly gay Ugandan national, that he will deported, despite the fact that the Ugandan government has a strict “no homo” police. What’s more, Nyombi’s brother worked as an opposition leader before being murdered by pro-government supporters.
Nyombi arrived in England in September of 2001 and has been living quietly in the country for seven years. He works with special needs adults.
Nyombi had once been granted asylum, but for some inexplicable reason, the Home Office appealed against it and Nyombi will be shipped off this Sunday.
This is, in a word, senseless.
