Archbishop of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Nyeri, Anthony Muheria, recalled how he was ambushed by Allan Makanda who disrupted Mwai Kibaki's state funeral service at Nyayo Stadium.
Speaking to the press on Saturday, April 30, Archbishop Muheria stated that one is never prepared to face such situations, but has to be ready nonetheless.
Bishop Muheria stated that he handled the situation with compassion as he understood Makanda was clearly disturbed and required attention.Archbishop of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Nyeri, Anthony MuheriaCourtesy
The Archbishop further stated that he handled the situation as he is required by the laws of the church and God. He noted that Makanda was emotionally disturbed and he should have been handled with care and understanding as God requires us to do.
Further, Archbishop Muheria noted that he doesn't deserve the credit and praise he has been getting rather the young person needed help.
He also urged the security aides to be kind to the young man who disrupted Kibaki's state funeral service at Nyayo Stadium.
"It's an incident that we don't foresee but we handle them as the Holy Spirit guides us. I think the young man was emotional and I really hope he is looked upon with mercy and someone attends to him," Bishop Muheria stated.
"It is what we should do as Christians even at events of that calibre that we should not lose touch of who we are and the people who are needy... but again I would not give too much credit that is what we should do," he added.
Makanda was recorded wailing about Mwai Kibaki's death at Parliament on Tuesday, April 26, before disrupting the late President's State Funeral at Nyayo National Stadium.
He approached the podium where the clergy was seated and requested to address the congregants at Nyayo Stadium.
Makanda requested two minutes to make a few remarks before security quickly intervened and whisked him away from the podium.Allan Makanda disrupts retired President Mwai Kibaki's funeral service at Nyayo Stadium on Friday, April 29, 2022.Courtesydeath
