Award-winning actress Catherine Kamau has joined other Kenyans in mourning slain model Edwin Chiloba. 

"I am so sorry πŸ’”πŸ˜”. My heart weeps for you . May your killers never know peace. Rest In Peace @its_edwinchiloba . 2023 wtf !!!!??? πŸŒˆπŸ™πŸ½ #justiceforedwinchiloba,”.

Kenyans from all walks of life are also mourning the untimely demise of model and LGBTQ activist Edwin Chiloba.

The fashion guru was allegedly killed and his body stashed in a metallic box and dumped along the Kipenyo - Kaptinga road, in Kapsaret, Uasin Gishu County.

An eyewitness claims that the metal box was dropped in the area by a numberless car.

The matter was reported to Uasin Gishu police who arrived at the scene and 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 deceased was Eldoret-based fashion designer Edwin Chiloba.

Following the confirmation, Kenyans took to social media to mourn Chiloba - many sharing memories they had with him.

Activist Njeri Wa Migwi eulogized the late Chiloba as a bold and passionate human being.

β€œEdwin Chiloba was an amazing human. He was bold and passionate, his energy was immaculate. He embodied fashion. Someone murdered him cruelly, put his body in a box & dumped his body.

β€œEdwin we speak your name. May yr blood not spill for nothing. Stop killing queer people,”

Another user Kevin Machiro wrote; β€œStop killing queer people. Travel well, Edwin Chiloba,”.

A Twitter user by the name of Stephen Mutoro called upon DCI to investigate the murder.

"Intolerance behind the 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,". 

An LGBTQ body - Black Pride and Equality Int condemned the brutal killing of Edwin Chiloba.

β€œ@BPEI_Africa As an organization, we received the news of the brutal murder of our very own Edwin Chiloba in disbelief. His senseless killers stuffed his body in a metal box in Kenya- Kapsaret, Uasin Gishu County.
