Body of murdered LQBTQ activist Edwin Kiprotich Kiptoo alias Chiloba has been removed from Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital morgue in Eldoret on January 17 for burial in his Elgeyo Marakwet home.

Mr Chiloba was found murdered, and his body was stashed in a metal box that was dumped at a village near Kipkaren on the outskirts of Eldoret Town, Uasin Gishu County.

A postmortem report revealed that he died due to a lack of oxygen caused by the stuffing of pieces of cloth in his mouth and nose.

This comes at a time when the family has asked the State agencies to bring to book those involved in gruesome murder.

“He is a human being and no human being should lose their life because everyone has the right to live. We demand that justice be served and we will not rest until he has gotten justice,” Caustencia Tanui, a cousin to the deceased, told Nairobi News.
