House of Hope Church Bishop Bishop Godfrey Migwi is dead.

Migwi, according to a source close to him, died due to high blood pressure yesterday.

The cleric was a fierce critic of President Uhuru Kenyatta and the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI). His death was announced on Kameme TV on Thursday, December 2.

His death comes less than six months after officially confirming he would vie for the Mathioya Parliamentary seat in the 2022 General Election.

The popular bishop, who had hundreds of thousands of followers in his church, was a supporter of DP William Ruto and is believed was planning to join UDA.

On Twitter, Ruto mourned the Bishop praising him for being vocal and bold when everyone else chose to stay silent.

“Bishop Godfrey Migwi was a bold, vocal and powerful spiritual leader with great sense of humour. He was a mentor and a friend with firm pastoral faith that he infused to many of us. We will miss his topical and nourishing sermons,” he said.

The death also comes just less than two months after another cleric passed on. Shem Shamala, the high priest of the African Church of the Holy Spirit based in Tumbeni area of Malava, Kakamega County, died just a week after getting a car gift from the DP.

Ruto surprised the priest with a car, a Suzuki Vitara in an effort to support him to spread the word.
