As cancer continues to devastate and send panic across Kenya following the recent deaths of high-profile cancer patients like Governor Joyce Laboso and Kibra MP Ken Okoth, Bishop Allan Kiuna has opened up about his own battle with the disease.
While reacting to the passing of the politicians, the founder of the Jubilee Christian Church said he went through a difficult battle with the disease last year.
Bishop Kiuna further thanked God for seeing him through the battle and sent messages of condolences to families of late Kibra MP Ken Okoth and Bomet Governor Joyce Laboso.
“Am so grateful to God for having seen me through a difficult battle with cancer last year. My heart goes out to the families of all who have lost their loved ones to the scourge. We are praying for God’s strength in your hour of grief.
“May God comfort the family of Gov. Laboso. And May God comfort the family of Hon. Ken Okoth. We are praying for you for God’s grace in your hour of grief,” Kiuna tweeted.
Just like he did last year when he first opened up about battling a medical condition, Mr Kiuna did not disclose what type of cancer he was suffering from.
The wealthy man of God took a sabbatical last year, spending months abroad undergoing treatment. He returned to the pulpit on July 8, saying in a televised address that he had been fighting the battle as a way of preparing him for greater things in the future.
