STOP REFUGEE BULLYING: Slander, Vilification, Lies, Hate Inciting Violence on Social Media Crimes in Kenya

We are posting this because we care about the integrity of the refugee program for LGBTQI refugees in Kenya. And also because we want to mitigate cyber-bullying and the danger it brings for all.

The screenshots below are examples of what could be construed, in each instance as a crime. The example reflects one LGBTQI refugee in Kenya attacking another LGBTI refugee in Kenya. Under Kenyan law it is a crime under Secs 22 and 23 of the Computer Misuse and Cyber Crimes Act of 2018 to defame, express hateful speech, vilify, lie or incite violence against an individual, with a punishment that varies between stiff fines and/or 2- 10 years in prison, depending on the facts and the severity.

The Parties being targeted are in fear for their safety!

  1. We the refugees being bullied by that number that keeps on increasing our lives are at stake. We thought shifting to a place far away from them would make us safe but it has turned out that we are being hunted in the whole area. We are not safe anymore, I don’t know what is likely to happen to me. Am scared for my life. Am appealing to the world I need help, I need protection.

  2. The Kenyan and Ugandan government should actually stop treating LGBT people badly and I wish some one in the organization can really please help my LGBT community in Uganda and Kenya coz the government and Unhchr say they care but honestly speaking they don’t they havent given the LGBT community food and clothing and a safe place to stay cos at the moment the LGBT community are being attacked and killed daily and I know uts happening and nothing has being done about it so please can someone help now
    The UNHCR hasn’t helped one bit
    From Kenneth
