Sheila Lumumba died a brutal death. She was allegedly gang raped by six men who then broke her leg, and then murdered her in Karatina, Nyeri County. Her only crime? She was a lesbian.
Details about her death were allegedly quoted from her autopsy report by the Usikimye organization. Usikimye said that Sheila was in her house when the gang of six men broke into her house.
“I just spoke to Sheila Lumumba’s best friend today, and we cried together. Today Sheila is dead. Six men broke into her house and gang-raped her, further broke her leg according to the autopsy and killed this beautiful beautiful human in Karatina town,” Usikimye’s Njeri Wa Migwi said on social media.
“Why? Because she was a lesbian. My heart is beyond broken. Sheila don’t rest, if you don’t get justice don’t rest babe, do not give them rest, curse them, that blood that you shed curse them, may they never know peace.”
Sheila’s body was discovered four days after the incident by her colleagues from FK Resort & Spa following her absence from work. Reports say that she used to work in Nyeri and reside in Karatina at a place called Muthua.
