Jubilee Christian church founder Bishop Kiuna is mourning the death of his mother, Mrs. Lillian Kiuna.
She passed away last Friday, same day as Dennis Oliech’s mother, while undergoing treatment at Avenue Hospital in Kisumu.
None of the Kiuna’s family shared the sad news on social media but congregants of JCC have been gathering at the Church every 5 PM to give support to the family.
Mrs. Kiuna leaves behind children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Bishop Kiuna’s mother will be laid to rest today in Githunguri, Kiambu County.
She died aged 74.
Below is a photo of her obituary as published in a local newspaper.
Last weekend, Kathy and Allan Kiuna’s last born child Jeremy turned 18 years old and the decorated best dressed female pastor shared a moving story about her son.
She posted the above photo of Jeremy when he was still an infant and captioned:
A REAL TBT. WHEN YOU SEE ME DANCE AND REJOICE IN GOD ‘S PRESENCE IT’S BECAUSE I KNOW HOW AWESOME HE’S BEEN IN MY LIFE. MY SON WAS BORN PREMATURELY AT 6 MONTHS AT ONLY 1.1KG. HE WAS ANAEMIC AND WENT THROUGH A BLOOD TRANSFUSION IN HIS TINY FRAME. HE WAS COVERED IN PIPES FROM HIS HEAD ALL THE WAY DOWN AND WE COULDN’T SEE HIS FACE. LOOKING AT HIS LITTLE BODY THERE SEEMED TO BE NO HOPE. HE WAS BORN A FIGHTER THOU AND NO MATTER WHAT WAS THROWN AT HIM HE ALWAYS FOUGHT BACK AND SURPRISED ALL OF US INCLUDING THE DOCTORS.
JEREMY’S STORY CANNOT FIT IN ONE BOOK. HE ROSE AGAINST ALL ODDS AND TODAY HE’S SUCH A JOY TO OUR LIVES. HE HAS A HEART THAT CAN FIT THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE. HE LOVES DEEPLY AND IS EXTREMELY SHARP. SO INFORMED THAT YOU CAN ENGAGE HIM IN ANY CONVERSATION AND HE’LL TAKE YOU ON. STRAIGHT A STUDENT THAT GRADUATES AND GOES TO UNIVERSITY NEXT YEAR. HE TURNS 18 THIS WEEKEND AND FOR ME TO SAY HAPPY BIRTHDAY WITHOUT GIVING YOU A LITTLE BACKGROUND OF WHY YOU SHOULD CELEBRATE WITH US WOULD BE UNFAIR. SO I DON’T JUST WISH YOU A HAPPY BIRTHDAY AS A CLICHE MY SON. IT IS FROM THE FIBER OF MY BEING.

We at Mpasho condole with the Kiunas.
