Foul play? Francis Atwoli’s brother in-law gunned down

Emmanuel Weyusia, Central Organisation of Trade Unions (COTU-K) Secretary General Francis Atwoli’s brother-in-law is dead.

Weyusia, who is Atwoli’s wife’s elder brother died after being shot by unknown people.

Announcing his death on Facebook, Mary Kilobi Atwoli wrote,

“9th October it is! Haki I can’t believe this hot brother of mine Emmanuel Weyusia has gone to be with the Lord. Marsh we’ve lost you to some cruel people who shot you…”

She described Weyusia as a very protective brother.

Weyusia’s friends thronged his social media pages expressing their shock in his death, which comes only several hours after he made a photo update on his Facebook page.

Some of those wishing him a peaceful rest described him as a jovial person who was full of life.

“My brother Marsh you made people enjoy my wedding by the dancing style last year, everybody wanted a selfie with you coz how smart you were, you lifted my wife in her gown when I was nable…” Wrote one Daniel Okalo.

“How do I say RIP. God, it may not be well with me now because of how I feel but I still hold onto you for comfort. Even though you have allowed this pain to come my way, you are still my God,” lamented the grief stricken Kilobi.


Kilobi and Atwoli made headlines after announcing their union in 2018.

The outspoken unionist is 69, while Kilobi, a KTN news presenter, is 35.
