The ODM fraternity has been thrown into mourning, barely weeks after the loss of Kibra MP Ken Okoth. This time, death has taken away the life of Raila’s aide Phillip Etale’s elder brother.
Etale, the Party’s Communication Director, announced on Twitter that he has lost his elder brother Zachariah. He asked Kenyans to pray for the family during this difficult moment.
“Friends, I am gutted. I feel finished. My elder brother Zachariah has just passed on a few moments ago. Please pray for our family. This is too much,” reads part of Etale’s tweet.
God why my family all the time? Sorry for questioning you Lord. Friends, I am gutted. I feel finished. My elder brother Zachariah has just passed on a few moments ago. Please pray for our family. This is too much.

August seems to be a dark month for the Etale family. On 21st August last year, the well-known blogger lost his beloved dad. Etale described his dad a source of his inspiration.
“At exactly 6:15 pm, son of the soil, my mentor, my source of inspiration, my friend, and my father went to be with the LORD. I am gutted. GOD the Creator, GOD the taker. You have made your decision. We can’t change it. RIP my Beloved Dad. I will personally miss you,” he said.
Kenyans have bombarded Etale with condolence messages following his latest lost.
My sincere condolences to you and your entire family. It is Well
