Only authorised scribes will cover Bishop Korir’s burial, says church

The Catholic Church in Eldoret has issued some requirements to journalists, who will cover the burial of Bishop Cornelius Korir on Saturday. Addressing the press at the Sacred Heart of Jesus Church, Fr Fredrick Njoroge, who is leading the sub-committee planning the burial of Korir, said only those accredited by the church will be allowed to cover the funeral service at the Eldoret Sports Club.

After the service, he said, only 20 journalists will be allowed inside the Sacred Heart of Jesus Church where the body will be laid to rest. “Journalists are required to provide the names of their media houses for accreditation.” Njoroge said the decision to bury Korir inside the church was reached by the Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops, headed by Bishop Philip Anyolo (pictured).
