Two Catholic priests die in accident

01 May 2013, 12:14Daniel Ndambuki

The Catholic Congregation of the Servants of the Sick (commonly known as St. Camillus) is mourning the untimely departure of their two priests who died in a grisly road accident near Sigona golf club along Limuru – Nairobi highway, on Monday night.

Rev. Fr. Richard Mutuku and Rev. Fr. Stephen Kavita died instantly in the accident that involved a saloon car in which the two were travelling in, and a bus belonging to the Easy Coach bus company.

According to sources, the two had left St. Camillus seminary together aboard the saloon car for Limuru to publish the seminary magazine earlier in the day.

The accident occurred near Sigona golf club as the saloon car tried to make a u-turn to access the Limuru-Nairobi lane on the busy dual carriage-highway.  

The Bus which was travelling from Nakuru hit the car from the rear on the right side, pushing it meters away and killing the two occupants instantly.  No one was injured in the bus.

Fr. Richard Mutuku has been working as the director of vocations for the congregation, and resides at the seminary grounds, situated along Bogani road near Karen, while Fr. Stephen Kavita has been the chaplain of Tabaka Mission Hospital in Kisii.  

Coincidentally, both come from Machakos County, where Hon. Mutula Kilonzo, the Makueni Senator was found dead in his Maanzoni home on Saturday last week.  

News of the demise of the two priests was received with shock by members of the congregation.

Some priests and seminarians rushed to the site of the accident at about midnight and confirmed the unbelievable.

The bodies of the deceased were taken to Kikuyu hospital mortuary.

By the time of reporting, members of St. Camillus congregation were still trying to come to terms with the great loss. The congregation will issue the burial date later.
