PRAY FOR THE SOUL OF ARCHBISHOP EMERITUS BONIFACE LELE
Dear Christians,
It is with great sadness that I communicate to you the news of the death of our beloved predecessor in the diocese of kitui, Archbishop Boniface Lele. God called him to his presence this afternoon after four days hospitalisation.  He had been ailing since four years, and retired due to health only five months ago.  I invite you all to pray for his soul, and especially to make an effort to offer many prayers for him in gratitude for all he did for us in Kitui diocese. We pray that The Lord may welcome him into the eternal kingdoms! and reward him for his service as a priest! a bishop in Kitui and an archbishop in Mombasa.

He is the first local priest in Kitui diocese together with Fr Peter Muema, and has been a father and a point of reference for many priests and religious sisters and bothers in kitui and certainly in Mombasa. We accept Gods will with peace and supernatural sense. God loved him more... he has completed his race, he has fight a good fight and he has kept the faith.

Though we feel pained and sad, let us rather thank God for his life, and for the time he granted us with the archbishop. Let is pray for the faithful of Mombasa at this moment uniting our prayers with theirs. Finally let us not forget to pray for Archbishops Leles family who have also suffered both with his sickness and also now with his passing away.

May God rest his soul in eternal peace. My most heartfelt condolences and pole to all the faithful in Kitui and Mombasa.  God bless you all.

Sincerely
Bishop Anthony Muheria
