Mama Ida and I are deeply saddened to learn of the sudden passing of our dear friend, a sober and reflective voice of the Catholic Church in Kenya, Bishop Cornelius Korir.

As Bishop of the Eldoret Diocese, Bishop Korir has been one of our nation’s leading moral lights and voices of reason who also did outstanding work with many communities and through such service, touched the lives of countless Kenyans.

We will forever appreciate that within the Diocese of Eldoret, Bishop Korir promoted both spiritual empowerment and economic development through his numerous community organizations and charitable efforts.

Nothing we do or say now can replace the gentle heart and humble determination that Bishop Korir brought to our country and to some of the most pressing challenges we face as a nation. It is however our prayer that his spirit may live on through the faithful and friends that he touched.

We join Bishop Korir’s family, the Catholic Church, and the people the Diocese of Eldoret in this moment of prayer and mourning.

Rt. Hon. Raila Odinga
