    Hi Anthony!

    As a victim of anti gay law in Uganda in 2014, i was arrested, beaten and tortured by the police and attacked by mob justice, that why i don’t agree with this message,

    i think the only way to improve LGBT better life in Tanzania is to continue cutting aid.

    I call all western countries to cut their aid to Tanzania, even the diplomatic relations if possible.

    LGBTI right is a human right, we have been treated like animals, killed, tortured,enough is enough.

    The change is now and not tomorrow, there is no more life to lose.

    Best regards,
    Joseph Saidi
