Despite risking the lives of a number of congregants and his life to host Deputy President William Ruto at the AIPCA Bahati Cathedral on October 4th, Bishop Rev. Stephen Ng’ang’a who succumbed to Covid-19 on November 5th was laid to rest at a quiet ceremony on Friday, November 13 at his home in Gacharage in Kigumo Sub-County in Muranga. His burial was a low-key ceremony not attended by any of the Tanga Tanga leaders present at his church on October 4th.
According to reports, Rev Nganga was diagnosed with Pneumonia after the fundraiser, something which has been confirmed by the AIPCA Secretary-General Secretary-General, Simon Kimaru Maina.
” I believe there are two sides to the phenomenon known as death, this side where we live, and the other side where we shall continue to live. Eternity does not start with death. We are eulogizing one of our synod member Bishop Stephen Ng’ang’a who was currently serving at Gatanga\Kakuzi Diocese Murang’a. REST WELL BISHOP,” the AIPCA Bahati Cathedral wrote in a statement.
