 The body was transferred to St. Francis Church where he actually was assistant pastor.....this morning the Mass began at 10am and ended up at 1.30pm....the Bishop of Nairobi was the main celebrant...

 The Mass was attended by a large number of faithful...friends...political leaders....his family members....many friars....young and old....

 It was emotional scene to see the friars carrying the coffin of deceased friar.....

 The parish choirs all joined together....it was heavenly choir....oh my goodness....the way they sing and clap...swing...even if you are not willing to sway you actually begin to sway and clap as everyone does it....i did it....the singing is very touching....

 Br. Paul the Custos then conducted the last rites.....
