President Ruto Attends Bishop Odonya’s Ordination In Trans Nzoia

President William Ruto is in Kitale, Trans Nzoia County, as part of his two-day tour of the region.

The Head-of-State, who was received by  Trans Nzoia Governor George Natembeya, is currently attending the ordination of Reverend Father Henry Juma Odonya who was in November 2022 named the new bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Kitale by Pope Francis.

Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi and National Assembly Speaker Moses Wetangula, alongside a host of other leaders, are also in attendance. 

Odonya succeeds Bishop Maurice Anthony Crowley who is retiring after reaching the clerical mandatory age to do so. Crowley had held the position since 1998.

Archbishop Bert Van Megen, the Pope’s representative of the Apostolic Nuncio to Kenya, announced Odonya’s appointment to the Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops (KCCB) last year.
