5th Anniversary

Human rights organizations and the Catholic Church are marking the fifth anniversary of Fr. John Kaiser's death by focusing attention on sexual violence.

The remembrance, which will take place on August 27, includes celebrations at Embul Bul Catholic Church in Ngong. The theme is "Say No to Sexual Violence: Building a Community Based on Human Dignity."

Fr. John was actively involved in helping young women in his parish after being raped by members of former President Moi's cabinet. In particular, he aided two women who had been raped and fathered children by Cabinet Member Julius Sunkuli. Sunkuli has been named several times during the Kenyan inquest being involved in some manner in John's murder.
