Kenyan LGBTQ Activist Edwin Chiloba Found Murdered

HeadlineJan 09, 2023

In Kenya, a prominent LGBTQ activist, Edwin Chiloba, was found murdered and left in a metal box by a roadside near the town of Eldoret. Four suspects have been arrested. Same-sex intercourse is punishable in Kenya by up to 14 years in prison, and discrimination against the LGBTQ community is still widespread. Edwin Chiloba’s sister spoke out after her brother’s body was found.

Melvin Faith: “He told me this would be the greatest year for him. I did not know that he was going to get killed. I am really shocked. For those people who did it, I pray for justice. I am appealing to the government to investigate this. He was a boy with dreams.”
