NAIROBI; KENYA: The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) has sent condolences to the family, relatives, friends and the entire community of the Anglican Church of Kenya on the demise of Archbishop (Rtd) Rev Dr David Gitari.

ODM said Dr Gitari was a true defender of democracy and a man who stood his ground on what he saw oppressive and dictatorial leadership.

“On behalf of the ODM Party Leader the Rt Hon Raila Odinga who was Dr Gitari’s personal friend, and that of the ODM fraternity, I wish to convey the message of condolences to the family, relatives, friends and the entire community of the Anglican Church of Kenya on the demise of Dr Gitari,” said ODM Secretary General Anyang’ Nyong’o in a statement.

ODM said the retired archbishop was among the few members of the clergy who spoke about the ills that affected Kenya as a society and never shied away from telling the truth.

“We shall remember him for his efforts in championing for political pluralism, an effort that bore fruits and ended the single party rule of independence party – KANU”.

During his days as the head of the Anglican Church of Kenya, Dr Gitari oversaw significant changes in the way the church was run and has continued to offer his services to the church even in retirement.

Retired Anglican Archbishop David Gitari passed on at 76 after a short illness at Mater Hospital in Nairobi on Monday afternoon.
