|Last Minute Hitch Fails Uhuru's Address at Ndingi's Burial by Saocv(1): Tue 07, April, 2020 10:50pm|
During the burial ceremony of the late celebrated Archbishop Emeritus Ndingi Mwana a' Nzeki, President Uhuru Kenyatta's speech was read out by Kennedy Kihara, who works in the executive office of the president.
Kihara explained that the president would have loved to share his message personally but was failed by technology.
"His Excellency the President wanted so much to be here with us this morning. However, we all appreciate the difficulty and circumstances we are all in and therefore, he was not able to make it here.
"Again, we had made arrangements for the president to speak to us through video link but technology failed us during the last minute and that is when he asked me to convey his goodwill message," Kihara stated.
In his condolence message, the president called upon Kenyans to emulate the good character of the late archbishop.
Further, the president stated that he would lead the nation in celebrating the life of the deceased once the Coronavirus pandemic was managed.
"He will lead the nation and set aside a day when the life of the late archbishop will be celebrated. May the Lord Almighty, rest the archbishop in everlasting peace," Kihara added.
The ceremony, which took place at the Holy Family Basilica, was attended by catholic bishops, Chief Justice David Maraga, Deputy CJ Philomena Mwilu, former Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka, CBK Governor Patrick Njoroge, Devolution CS Eugene Wamalwa, Foreign Affairs CS Monica Juma and a number of MPs.
The late archbishop was buried in a holy crypt in an underground chamber at the Holy Family Basilica in Nairobi following the Catholic Church tradition of burying priests where they served.
The crypt has approximately 34 slots with Ndingi Mwana a'Nzeki counting as the second bishop to be buried in the chamber after the late retired Archbishop John Njenga who served in Mombasa but expressed his wish to be buried in Nairobi.
Mwana a'Nzeki passed away aged 88 after battling illness for a long time.
