Kenya: Anglican Bishop Turns 60 in Style

The first week of 2013 was a blessing to Anglican Church of Kenya (ACK) Mombasa Memorial Cathedral along Nkrumah road, when Bishop Julius Kalu turned 60. He celebrated by conducting a half an hour colourful ceremony within the church compound.

The bishop who has served 19 years in his post was accompanied by his wife Rose and grandchildren. The event was emceed by Jane Mwailongo with the church choir led by Morris Mwaro while children threw balloons in the air.

While celebrating his 60th birthday he came up with the idea of forming a charity to assist impoverished families to enable them to pay school fees and buy foodstuffs.

The colourful observance attracted many leaders including Mombasa county governor aspirant Suleiman Shahbal accompanied by his running mate Emmanuel Nzai and Coast general chief administrator David Mwangi.
