Famous Activist Edwin Chiloba Killed, Body Stuffed in Metallic Box

Famous LGBTQ activist Edwin Chiloba killed, body stuffed in metallic box in Uasin Gishu.

Police in Uasin Gishu County have identified the body of a man found stuffed inside a metallic box along the Kipkenyo-Kaptinga Road in Uasin Gishu County as LGBTQ+ activist Edwin Chiloba. According to the police, the body was discovered by a bodaboda rider who was shocked of a metallic box by the roadside before alerting other people and the police.

When police arrived at the scene, they opened the box, and found the man’s decomposing body, dressed in a woman’s clothes. His body was taken to the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital, awaiting post-mortem to establish the cause of death.

Following that sudden death of the young man, Kenyans led by Mwalimu Abduba Dida and Stephen Mutoro have reacted saying that no one deserves to die because they are advocating for different things.

"Must these LGBQ people go telling the world of thier sinful lives? Can't they live quietly like the heterosexuals? What troubles these guys in the end they attract even death?" Zipporah Moraa reacted.

"Edwin Chiloba was an amazing human. He was bold, passionate, his energy was immaculate. He embodied fashion. Someone murdered him cruelly, put his body in a box & dumped his body. Edwin we speak your name. May yr blood not spill for nothing. Stop killing queer people." Njeri was Migwi posted.

"Intolerance behind brutal killing of #LGBTQ activist Edwin Chiloba must be called out. His senseless killers stuffed his body in a metal box in Kapsaret, Uasin Gishu County. While the motive is unclear, I hope @DCI_Kenya will unravel the perpetrators. Condolences to his family." Stephen Mutoro.

"I condemn the brutal murder of Edwin Chiloba, an LGBTQ activist. I call upon the police to speed up investigations and deliver justice. Even though I don't support this group, murdering them isn't right." Mwalimu Abduba Dida Reacted
