Catholic Archbishop emeritus Raphael Ndingi Mwana a’Nzeki (pictured) is dead, the Archdiocese of Nairobi has announced. He was 88-years-old.
The Archdiocese of Nairobi said Cardinal John Njue announced Mwana a’Nzeki’s death.
“Let us pray for the repose of his soul,” the church said.
The long-serving retired archbishop died last night in Nairobi. ODM leader Raila Odinga has eulogised him as “one of the brightest lights to have graced our nation in our time.”
“Kenyans knew they could always count on him to stand and speak out for truth and justice whatever the threat that posed to his life,” Raila said.
