Daily Nation (Kenya) - - TRIBUTE TO KENYA’S HERO -

Fr Fredrick Njoroge in-charge of Com­mu­ni­ca­tions, El­doret Catholic Dio­cese

All I can say is that Bishop Cor­nelius Korir was so dear to all of us. One unique thing about him is that he went out of his way and em­ployed peo­ple from all walks of life. Esther Korir- From Kap­ta­gat Catholic Parish

I knew Bishop Cor­nelius Korir in 1988 when he was or­dained. He came to the El­doret Dio­cese when he was still a very young man. Un­til his death, the bishop served and treated ev­ery­one equally.

Eu­nice Kiprono- From Ki­mumu Catholic Parish

I have known Bishop Cor­nelius

Korir as a peace­maker. He tra­versed the coun­try preach­ing peace and urg­ing feud­ing com­mu­ni­ties to di­a­logue. He helped us build our faith and fear of God. Martha Ng­eleche - Chair­per­son Catholic Women As­so­ci­a­tion, El­doret Dio­cese

For the time God has en­abled us to be with our bishop, I have known him as a peace loving per­son. He has re­ally been at the fore­front sup­port­ing our projects. Si­mon Kos­gey - Pro­grammes Co­or­di­na­tor, Catholic Church Jus­tice and Peace Com­mis­sion

I met the bishop in 2008 dur­ing the post-poll vi­o­lence. I have been mo­bil­is­ing com­mu­ni­ties un­der his guid­ance to preach di­a­logue in case of con­flicts. Lopeker Lupuun- Turkana el­der

I had to travel all the way from Turkana to El­doret to pay my last re­spects to my bishop whom I re­gard as my hero. He man­aged to unite the Turkana and Pokot and I don’t think there is some­one who can fill the gap that he has left.
