"He Was An Inspiration" Edwin Chiloba's Cousins Mourns Him As The Activist Is Laid To Rest

Saying goodbye is never easy

Slain LGBTQ activist Edwin Chiloba's eulogy left his family in tears as they recalled how he was.

They tearfully read his achievements while noting that they would miss him dearly.

Slain LGBTQ model Edwin Chiloba has been laid to rest today, Tuesday 17, 2023.

The family of slain LGBTQ activist Edwin Kiprotich alias Chiloba has said that he will be buried Tuesday in line with Kalenjin burial rites.

Chiloba's family got emotional while reading his eulogy noting that they loved him and he was an inspiration.

A cousin, Ms Caustencia Tanui, said he will be buried at his father's Sergoit home in Elgeyo-Marakwet County.

“We shall observe all our community burial traditions. Since he was still a bachelor, his body will be moved straight from the mortuary to funeral service ahead of his internment,” she explained.

The late model's burial was filled with a lot of people from his village and most TikTokers shared a live feed from the burial.

In most Kalenjin-speaking communities, anyone who dies without a child or being married is interred without spending the night at their homes.
