Why LGBTQ Chiloba Will Be Burried The Same Day He Will Leave Morgue

Edwin Kiprotich, also known as Chiloba, an LGBTQ activist, will be put to rest on Tuesday. On Tuesday morning, his remains would be transferred from MTRH's mortuary to his family's home in Sergoit village, Elgeyo Marakwet County. According to Chiloba's cousin Gladys Chiri, the funeral arrangements have been finished, and the family will be at the mortuary by 8 a.m. to pick up the corpse.

She said that after the burial they will immediately return home for a family service. No one knows when or where the ceremony will take place, and the family has been mum on the subject.

It was revealed that Chiloba had been slain and his corpse deposited in a metal box at Hurlingham hamlet, close to Kipkare on the outskirts of Eldoret town. Police have detained five people, including three kids, on murder charges.

Jacktone Odhiambo, who shared a home with Chiloba in the Kimumu region on the Eldoret-kIten Road, is the main suspect. After a forensic investigation into the murder is complete, the suspect will likely be prosecuted and brought back to court on January 31.
