Worshippers thronged the St Xavier Catholic Church in Naivasha Town to commemorate the death of Father John Kaiser.

The faithful sang and danced during the special Mass dedicated to the priest.

During a sermon, Father James Kinuthia of the Nairobi Diocese urged Christians to learn from the past and strive to do justice.

“There is no fear in doing what is right and just,” he told the congregation.

He further said that Father Kaiser was being remembered because of his good deeds and selflessness.

“He strove to do what is just and was a selfless person,” said Father Kinuthia.

The country, he noted, could only move forward by embracing positive changes and rectifying the past misdeeds.

On August 24, Father Kaiser’s body was found in a ditch by the roadside on the Naivasha-Nakuru highway, with his shotgun by his side.
