Anglican Church of Kenya Archbishop Emeritus Benjamin Nzimbi (pictured) has demanded that findings of a commission of inquiry into the death of former Eldoret Diocese Bishop Alexander Kipsang Muge be made public.
Nzimbi said the report would enable the family and congregants have peace of mind.
He said the commission should have released the report after investigations were conducted into the mysterious death of Muge on August 14, 1990, in an accident at Kipkaren on the Bungoma-Eldoret road.
Nzimbi said the cause of Muge’s death should be made public for the family, church and other Kenyans to know the truth about his death and end speculations that have lasted 29 years.
He spoke during a thanks giving service in memory of the late bishop at the ACK Bishop Muge memorial Chapel in Eldoret that has been named after him.
He was accompanied by ACK Eldoret Diocese Bishop Dr Christopher Ruto who led Christians in a procession after laying flowers on Muge’s grave at St Mathews ACK Cathedral.
He criticised the Government for forming commissions that use a lot of public resources to do work but never release their findings.
“We remember Bishop Muge in a special way for mostly initiating many development projects within the Eldoret Diocese and the country as large,” said Nzimbi.
He termed Muge as a vocal preacher and a fearless critic of the former President Daniel Moi’s government.
“A brave person he was that he would go ahead and tell the government on its face that it did wrong and that he would tell them to mend the broken ends it failed to adhere,” he added.
Nzimbi stated that Muge was not only a bishop but also a prophet to whom he referred as the John the Baptist.
“He gave suggestions on how we could overcome the prophecies he predicted, he was a God-given person to whom we referred to as the John Baptist,” he said.
