A gay asylum seeker in the UK fears persecution if he returns to Uganda

A gay Ugandan asylum seeker is making a desperate plea for help just days before he is deported home where he claims his life is at risk.

After two failed attempts by the UK Border Agency to deport 41-year-old Felix Wamala, once on 24 December 2011 and again on 2 January, he has been booked on a Virgin flight back to Uganda on Friday (4 May).

Wamala is currently being held at Colnbrook Immigration Removal Centre near Heathrow airport, west London.
