A Mombasa bishop has succumbed to Covid-19 barely three months after his son based in USA died of the same virus.
Bishop Elisha Juma of the Kenya Assemblies of God (KAG), Tudor, succumbed to the disease on Monday, June 29, at Mombasa Hospital.
A statement issued by the family confirmed the unfortunate incident stating that the cleric was also battling diabetes making his condition worse.
The family is now appealing for funds to clear the funeral expenses as well hospital bills.
“We are planning to raise funds to help pay funeral expenses and the hospital bill, a total of KSh 2 million,”Justus Oyola, the deceased’s burial committee treasurer told the Daily Nation.
Juma was survived by his wife reverend Mary Juma and five children most of who reside abroad in the US and UK. His death comes months after his eldest son Peter Juma who worked as a nurse and preacher in the US died on Saturday, March 28, after contracting the virus.
