A popular Kenyan Gay rights activist Edwin Chiloba, has been brutally murdered with his body hidden in a metallic box.
The police in Kenya on Wednesday, January 4 began an investigation into the murder of the model.
Chiloba’s body was discovered in a metallic box along the Kipenyo-Kaptinga road, in Kapsaret, Uasin Gishu.
According to the police, preliminary investigations show that a car without a plate number was seen dropping the metal box in the area.
Speaking on the incident, the spokesperson of the Kenyan Police Force, Resila Onyango said they are yet to know the motive.
“We don’t know for now why he was killed that way. Experts are handling the matter,” she said.
The matter was reported to police officers who were manning a nearby roadblock. The officers abandoned their post and rushed to the scene. Upon opening the box, a decomposing body of a man dressed in a woman’s clothes was found inside.
It was later established that the dead body was that of the fashion designer and gay rights activist.
His remains were then deposited at the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital awaiting post-mortem to establish the cause of d€ath as investigations start.
Recall that Chiloba had raised the alarm last year that he’d been attacked brutally over his work for the community.
