God why? ODM leader cries out after 4 family members died in less than a month

Black August for ODM director as he loses 4 family members and 3 friends

God why? ODM Communications Director Philip Etale cries out after elder brother, 3 brothers-in-law died within three weeks

It a black August for ODM Communications Director Philip Etale after he lost his elder brother on Monday morning.

In the course of the month, Mr Etale also lost three brothers-in-law at once on August 8, 2019 in separate incidents.

That notwithstanding, the ODM leader has attended various funerals for family friends and mourned the deaths of some of his friends, all occurring before the month reached its halfway point.

"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," he lamented in a post on his social media pages.

Take Heart, It is well

Soon after the death of his 3 in-laws, Etale posted a touching message to his sisters mentioning them by name.

"Yesterday [August 8], I lost three relatives separately. All of them brothers-in-law. My sisters Eunice, Rael and Claire... It is well," he encouraged them.

On Monday, Etale's followers and his colleagues posted messages expressing their sympathy and assuring him of their prayers following the tragic update.
