The deputy president William Ruto has mourned bishop Godfrey Migwi.
Ruto said that Migwi was a bold, vocal and powerful spiritual leader with great sense of humour.
“He was a mentor and a friend with firm pastoral faith that he infused to many of us. We will miss his topical and nourishing sermons,” Ruto said on Thursday morning.
The family has not said the cause of his death.
“Our love and prayers to the family, their loved ones and the House Of Hope Church-Kayole fraternity during this sad time. Rest In Peace, Bishop Migwi.”
Migwi, who some people termed controversial, passed away on Wednesday.
The bishop had declared his interest to vie for Mathioya parliamentary seat.
“The people of Mathioya need change and I know what it takes to provide that change. I have lived amongst them, mobilized with them and I’m confident I know the kind of solutions they need to move forward,” he stated.
