The late Fr Christopher Wanyonyi, parish priest at Cathedral Christ the King, Bungoma, is being laid to rest today.
A requiem mass was held this morning at the church where he used to minister. His body will be interred at the Kibabii cemetery for clergy.
Fr. Wanyonyi died last Sunday from Covid19-related complications. He had been ailing from July 1, 2021.
“While he served as a priest, Fr. Wanyonyi also expended all his energies to champion the education of our children,” Bungoma Governor Wycliffe Wangamati eulogised him. “That Christ the King Primary School is one of the best schools in the country speaks of Fr Wanyonyi not just as an administrator but also a consummate educationist at heart.”
