Kapseret member of parliament Oscar Sudi has said that Kenyans will not accept the idea of homosexuality terming it as satanic as police arrested three more men over the murder of LGBTQ activist Edwin Chiloba.
Police say the three who include two minors assisted assisted in carrying the box that was used to dump the activist’s body.
Chiloba was founded murdered and his body stashed in a metallic box along the Kipenyo – Kaptinga road, in Kapsaret, Uasin Gishu County on January 4.
Initial reports indicated that a numberless vehicle was seen dropping the metal box in the area by a Bodaboda rider who happened to be driving by the area when it happened.

The matter was reported to police officers who were manning a nearby roadblock. They 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 shocking a crowd that had already milled around the scene.
A Nairobi based photographer Jacktone Odhiambo which this publication has established was in a romantic relationship with Chiloba was the first one to be arrested.
This is after a care taker and Chiloba’s neighbour at his apartment along Eldoret Kisumu road told police that he saw Odhiambo carrying the same box which the former LGBTQ activist’s body was found in. Two of the men are aged below 18 years.
They are currently being detained at Yamumbi Police Station.
As investigations into the murder continue, Sudi who had taken a sabbatical from politics has thrown the spanner in the works saying Kenyan leadership will never accept LGBTQs.
“Our culture is that you are born, go to school, get circumcised, get a job, get married and have children. Those who are gays, if their parents were like them they would not have been born,” said the politician at a function in his constituency.
“That is satanism, as the church and as leaders we will not accept,” he said.
