Kenya Mourns the Loss of Beloved Jubilee Christian Church Founder Bishop Allan Kiuna

Bishop Allan Kiuna, the co-founder and senior pastor of Jubilee Christian Church (JCC) in Nairobi, has passed away. He died in a Nairobi hospital after his condition worsened on Tuesday, confirmed by a family spokesperson.

Allan Kiuna had been battling multiple myeloma cancer since his diagnosis in 2018/2019. Multiple myeloma is a type of cancer characterized by abnormal plasma cells accumulating in the bone marrow, forming tumors in various bones throughout the body. Despite undergoing treatment in the US and being declared cancer-free at one point, his condition relapsed.

Kiuna’s death has been widely mourned, with many describing him as a dedicated and inspirational leader. His wife, Bishop Kathy Kiuna, and their family have received an outpouring of support from friends, family, and the larger community. President William Ruto also expressed his condolences, praising Kiuna as a “dedicated Christian leader” who inspired many to follow the teachings of the Lord. “To his wife, Rev. Kathy Kiuna, and family, we stand with you in this time of grief and mourning, and pray that you find the courage to persevere through this trying period,” Ruto said.

Bishop Allan Kiuna, alongside his wife, established Jubilee Christian Church in January 1999, envisioning a vibrant faith community. His legacy continues through the lives he touched and the church he helped build.

The church released a statement, saying, “Bishop Allan Kiuna was an extraordinary man who touched the lives of many with great passion for ministering not just locally but globally.” They also described him as a loving husband, father, grandfather, and friend.

Many Kenyans have taken to social media to express their condolences to the Kiuna family. Kanini Kega, the national secretary of the Jubilee Party, lamented, “It’s a very sad day indeed. My friend Bishop Allan Kiuna of JCC church, may you shine on your way. Sad!”

Funeral arrangements will be announced soon, as the nation continues to mourn the loss of a beloved spiritual leader.
