Pastor found dead in woman’s house in Buruburu

Police are investigating the death of a pastor in the house of a woman in Buruburu.

Buruburu OCPD Mr Richard Kerich said police are yet to establish the cause of death of the Redeemed Gospel Church pastor.

The deceased is said to have collapsed and died during “a prayer session”.

According to Mr Kerich, the pastor, 70-year-old Geoffrey Maingi, drove himself to the house belonging to Esther Wavinya at around 11 am.

“We were informed of the death at around 5pm according to what we gathered from the woman is that he collapsed and died,” he said.

According to preliminary reports by police, the man is said to have had high blood pressure.

On her part Ms Wavinya said: “I was not in the house when the pastor came. So when I got to the house he told me that he wanted to rest. I had to let him rest.”

When he developed breathing problems she ran outside to call a taxi.

He died while she was still looking for a taxi, said Ms Wavinya.

The 40-year-old lady said the pastor used to visit the house occasionally to pray for her.

But angry residents would hear none of that saying the woman should have been punished for killing the pastor.

They yelled outside the house just next to Buruburu Tuskys, calling for her to be brought outside so that they could ‘teach her a lesson.’
