The church for which he was a Bishop is located in his farm in Juja.
“We want justice for our slain brother, father and spiritual leader. Police should leave no stone unturned until they apprehend the assassins,” his brother Samuel Njuguna told journalists.
“I saw the body on my to work in Thika town but I did not recognise him. An hour later, I was called by neighbours who told me that he had been murdered.”
According to his brother Njuguna ,his slayers stole nothing ,making him feel that the killing was properly planned.
His followers led by Rev Lincoln Mwaniki, eulogised him as a calm and loving man.
