A 44-year-old pastor of the Free Salvation Life Ministries church in Kanduyi, Bungoma County, Mr. Sifuna, collapsed from his seat while preparing to preach to his congregation.
According to reports, the pastor was rushed to the hospital for treatment but was confirmed dead by doctors.
The church bishop, Mr Nahashon Khaemba while confirming the incident said Mr Sifuna had just recovered from sickness and was set to preach for the first time after recovery.
The Bishop said: “We have lost a trusted and dedicated servant of God. We cannot blame anyone for what has happened. We can only praise the Lord for we know He had good plans for him. The church is mourning but we know that God knows better,” Bishop Khaemba was quoted by the Standard. Bishop Khaemba added: “Since recovering, he never complained of pain and there were no indication he was sick. I am surprised that we have lost him in such a mysterious way.”
