It is with great sadness that we announce the tragic death of Bro. Kennedy Mwangi, O.Carm. (born in 1986) who was shot dead on the 27th of December while he was on holiday with his family for Christmas. The shooting took place very close to the Carmelite house of “Bustani ya Karmeli” in Nkoroi (Kenya). Robbers entered the house, and when they saw that Bro. Kennedy was trying to use the phone to contact the police, they shot him causing serious damage to his lungs. He was already dead when admitted to hospital. The Prior General was in immediate contact with Fr. Boniface Kimondolo, O.Carm., the Delegate General of Kenya, to convey the sympathy and support of the Order in these difficult moments. From Citoc, we join with Bro. Kennedy’s family and the Delegation of “Our Lady of Mount Carmel” in Kenya in mourning the loss of our brother and we commend him in prayer to the God of life.
