Dear Alaskans Together for Equality,
HEAR MY CRY.
My name is Tatelicious Karigambe a very proud woman from Zimbabwe
Africa and may you please read my story.
Recently i defied the odds by becoming the first Transgender in my
country to publicly tell my story to the whole nation of Zimbabwe
through the use of media specifically the radio and the print media.
Ooooh yes the main agenda i did this was to educate my fellow citizens
about Transgenders issues and well this was delivered.
The problem came now when the government of Zimbabwe intervened and
they are calling my move as Western Sponsored Science Project.My house
was burnt and my car was vandalized.I also received an anonymous
package containing three gun bullets and it had a printed note written
“WE ARE WATCHING YOU”.I am now afraid of what is gonna come next as
the ZANU PF youths are doing all they can to destroy transgender lives
in Zimbabwe and t6hey are getting support from the President Robert
I went to the police to report but all was in vain and also i seeked
for Civil Society groups in Zimbabwe who claim to stand for the LGBTIQ
but all they said is they cant help me because they fearing that their
organizations will be forced to close and they will never receive
funding form the Ministry of Health here in Zimbabwe.As we speak i was
denied access to take my ARVs at a local clinic here in Zimbabwe as
they said they where given that directive by the Central Intelligence
Office of Zimbabwe through the call by the President Robert Mugabe.
Right now i am hiding in rural areas and lucky enough the Headmistress
of the school where i am staying is my best friend and there is also
access of internet services.
May you please assist as this will give new hope to the Transgender
community in Zimbabwe that we have friends that will stand with us in
time of need.I don’t want to die before i see a complete gender
revolution in my country that’s why i am seeking for your help to get
an asylum before they kill me and believe me Mugabe will do whatever
it takes to bring US down.
Your Assistance will go a long way and will never be forgotten.
PLEASE HELP A SISTER OUT.
Ms Tatelicious Karigambe
