The Africa Independent Pentecostal church of Africa AIPCEA) is mourning the death of Archbishop Evanson Ndungu Kibe. Kibe passed on yesterday at Nazareth hospital in Kiambu county.

According to his son Paul Muthee Ndungu Kibe, his father had been battling Asthma for a long time. Last night his health deteriorated and was rushed to Nazareth hospital.

He was pronounced dead on arrival. His body has been moved to Monalisa funeral home.

Ndungu took of as the head of the AIPCEA church in July 2011 from Archbishop Samson Mwangi Gaitho who also died shortly after handing over.

Archbishop Evanson Ndung'u Kibe had last year in July met prime minister Raila Odinga where the AIPCA church has been petitioning the Kenya government over schools it established before independence.

“It’s a very big blow to us as a church as we lost Archbishop Samson Gaitho towards the end of 2011 and Ndungu has only served the church slightly more than one year,” Pastor George Ngigi said.
