The 76-year-old Archbishop Zacchaeus Okoth, who was ordained at 26, is today handing over the expansive Kisumu Archdiocese to another veteran, Archbishop designate Philip Arnold Subira Anyolo, 62, who arrived in Kisumu in style yesterday evening.

Archbishop Okoth who was ordained to head the Kisumu Archdiocese in May 1990, could not grant an interview yesterday since he was preparing for the big handing over ceremony but other bishops, priests and lay leaders we spoke to, spoke of a man who totally dedicated his life to the Church.
