By Fay Ngina | Aug 19th 2019 | 1 min read

Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) Communications Director Philip Etale is in mourning after losing his brother.

Etale announced the death of his elder brother, Zacharia, on Monday morning 19 August through his social media handles.

The ODM Communications Director did not disclose the cause of death but asked Kenyans to pray for his family.

“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,” said Etale.

On August 9 2019, Etale also said that he had lost his three brothers-in-law in separate incidents.

"Yesterday [August 8], I lost three relatives separately. All of them brothers-in-law,” said Etale.

Kenyans on social media comforted the ODM Director while passing their condolences;
