Gay gay man killed, mutilated in South Africa activist believe hate crime…

South Africa: A young gay man Thapelo Makutle, 23, who identified as transgender was found in a rented room with his throat cut and body mutilated, in what activists believe was a hate crime.

Nothing was stolen from the room or Makutle,  which leads gay rights group LEGBO to believe the motive was not robbery. Adding to the hate crime theory is the gruesome facts that Makutle’s throat was not only cut but his tongue was removed and his genitals cut off and put in his mouth.

“The community is in a state of trauma, they are shocked,” Pereira said. “The community gathered last night and we just stood with the family.”
