Ati Edwin Chiloba was a pastor!? Netizens dispute family's assertion after viral video

Chiloba's house mate Jackton Odhiambo confessed to killing the fashionista for allegedly cheating on him

Jackton Odhiambo admits to killing Edwin Chiloba because of cheating

Ever since the family of murdered LGBTQ activist Edwin Kiprotich Kiptoo, also known as Chiloba announced that their son wasn't gay Kenyans have been in a state of confusion.

People could not fathom how the cross-dressing Chiloba they knew could've been a pastor as his family claimed.

Netizen sleuths made it their business to go fishing in the deceased social media pages in a bid to prove that his family was just trying to save face and Edwin was indeed not just an activist but a member of the rainbow community as well.


And following the videos being shared from his TikTok page it seems that the fashion designer might have been leading a double life.


One of the videos trending on TikTok is a video of Edwin Chiloba twerking in boxers.

He was dancing along to Ayra Starr's hit song Rush. The video is under a search tag titled: "Edwin Chiloba unboxed."

Kenyans were quick to highlight that his family should be shown his social media pages so that they can know who their son really was.


Below are some comments from TikTok users.

Johnes: Pastor anatingisha nyash...jeeso

user917: Pastor Chiloba, leader C.U .... Sisi ni nani tukatae mambo familia inasema

Phyby: huyo mama alikua anaongea kwa TV aonyeshwe hizi videos

anncate7: Pastor preacher ndio huyu

fidelisshiques: huyu ndio pastor? Meaning his family hasn't seen this preaching

Le Diplomatiqu: the family saying he was a "pastor" should see this... anyway watasema ni fashion alikuwa anafanya.

The late Chiloba's family appealed to Kenyans to refrain from spreading untrue information about him online

In an interview on Monday with NTV, his cousin Gaudencia Tanui said Chiloba was a God-loving man since his teenage years contrary to the picture of an immoral person being painted about him.

"He was a boy with vision. He was a church leader at Sergoit Primary School where he attended. At St Francis Kimuron he was even nicknamed pastor because he was a child of the church," she said.


"Haya mambo ambayo tunasikia yakienea social media, wakenya wenzangu tafadhali, muache kueneza mambo ambayo hamuna ukweli na ambayo si ya ubinadamu. Tunaumia kama familia," Gaudencia added. 

(Those things we are hearing spreading on social media, Kenyans please, stop spreading information you are not sure about and which is not humane. We are suffering as a family)

Following his death, five suspects have so far been arrested in connection with his murder, including one who confessed to being his lover.
