An autopsy to find out what killed LGBTQ activist Edwin Kiprotich alias Chiloba today revealed that he succumbed to asphyxiation (a process of being deprived of oxygen, which can result in unconsciousness or death).
Speaking during a press briefing on Wednesday, Chief Government Pathologist Johansen Odour said Chiloba’s mouth and nose had been covered using a cloth.
His mouth was also blocked using three pairs of socks and his brain was swollen.
Oduor said three pairs of socks were found stuffed in his mouth.
The chief pathologist said he found that the body was decomposed but during the exercise, they discovered pieces of clothes.
Oduor spoke at the Moi Referral Hospital after an exercise that took more than three hours
More samples have since been collected from the body for further testing by the government chemist.
Chiloba’s body was discovered stuffed in a metallic box in Kipkenyo, Eldoret, on Wednesday, January, 4.
Eyewitnesses reported seeing unknown assailants droping off the metallic box by the roadside before speeding off.
