Reading Time: < 1 minute

A Catholic priest was killed in Kenya. Fr. Eutycas Murangiri Muthur, of the parish of Limbine, diocese of Meru, county of Tigania, was stabbed to death by one or more individuals at about 1.30 am on June 4th, in Makutano, at about 200 km from the capital, Nairobi.

The circumstances of the killing are not clear but the police arrested a man and a woman who apparently were with Fr. Eutycas.

Fr. Eutycas was 32 years old and was ordained on December 23, 2018.

The priest’s father, Mr Domiciano Muthuri, said the family and faithful of Nkabune Parish, where Fr Muthuri hailed from, were shocked. “He was a humble man who never indulged in bad things. We are really hurting,” he said.
