Mr wanendeya, according to witnesses, was threatened by an unknown person in plain clothes.

Ms irene Namono,a family member,  said that they have checked  all areas they suspected he could be but in vain.

Another source disclosed to this media house that Mr Wanendeya went into hiding to an unknown place.

A close friend who requested not to be named for fear of his security revealed that Mr. Tom came up openly as a gay and had started recruiting several youths into LGBT as opposed by the Government of Uganda.
