“I left Kenya because I was fleeing not only persecution but unjust abuses. It’s still happening now. It’s even worse.”
Before he left Kenya, David worked for the Kenyan Election Board. “I was being forced to do illegal activities… to steal the election,” he said.
David was attacked and stabbed when he was still in Kenya. Later, his former manager was murdered.
He is also gay and spoke out for the rights of the LGBT+ community while in Kenya. But homosexuality is illegal there.
“People are assaulted in gay prides,” David said. “People have to wear masks.”
David is now claiming asylum in the UK. If the Home Office decides that his case is strong enough, he will be allowed to live in Britain as a refugee.
Like many people in his position, David has to report to the Home Office regularly.
