Catholic Church family is mourning over death of Retired Diocese Bishop


Retired Homa Bay Catholic Diocese Bishop Emeritus Linus Okok Okwach on Sunday died while undergoing treatment at St. Monica Hospital, Kisumu, at 68.

Kisumu Catholic Archbishop Philip Anyolo, who confirmed his death, said the retired bishop was admitted at the facility for injuries sustained after he fell in his house last year.

Archbishop Anyolo said the deceased developed several complications following the falling incident.

Bishop Okok was appointed to head the Homa Bay Diocese in 1993 where he served for about ten years before retiring in 2002.
