Long-serving Retired Catholic Archbishop Ndingi Mwana a’Nzeki has passed away at the age of 88.
Reports indicate that he died after a long illness.
The late bishop was ordained by the late Pope Paul VI in Uganda during the pontiff’s historic visit to Africa.
At the height of his active life, Ndingi was a leading voice on matters democracy, constantly pinpointing failures of leadership during the Kanu regime. He never tired from reminding Kenyans the importance of participating in the democratization through elections, lobbying or civil activism.
He served in many roles and places first as the assistant priest at Makadara, Nairobi, Education Secretary-General of Catholic Bishops, Bishop of Machakos, then of Nakuru and finally the Archbishop of Nairobi.
