The DP described Shamalla in his message of condolences to the family of the Kakamega pastor that he was a faith leader with steadfast religious credence.
“Deeply saddened by the loss of High Priest Shem Shamalla of the African Church of the Holy Spirit – Kakamega. He was a faith leader with steadfast religious credence. His sermons were always powerful, enriching and educative,” Ruto said on his Twitter.
Shamalla, 84, died on Wednesday morning, October 27, at his Malava home in Kakamega County, after a short illness.
“Our prayers to the Shamalla family, the church and the people of Malava during this painful time of mourning. Rest In Peace my friend,” Ruto said.
