St Ignatius Parish Priest Charles Chilinda dies


St Ignatius Parish Priest Father Charles Chilinda has died.

Father Chilinda who had been battling with Covid-19 and was admitted to Maina Soko hospital and died on Thursday evening.

Father Chilinda who is also Loyola Media Director, an Apostalate of the Society of Jesus, has over the last decade emerged as a strong figure from the clergy.

He was renowned as a peace-maker and national builder and unifier, helping bringing together political figures and ending political conflicts


  1. Into God’s hands we commend your Spirit. Your priesthood was a life shared in Christ and following Him to the end. May He receive you into His eternal kingdom.
    The sting of death is for the Living and never for the dead. rest in peace

  2. This sad.. But on a serious note lets take this corona seriously. GOD will not be annoyed if we stop congregating for some time until this CORONA is OVER…. We can congregate virtually where possible….. Problem with our religious leaders is that they are stubborn….This is a health pandemic and it knows no religion

  3. This is so sad…..surely Fr Chilinda is no more, my heartfelt Condolences to the family, friends and the Catholic Community at large especially st Ignatius .You Will Be Greatly Missed until we meet again on the other side, MYSRIP
