Peter Njenga: The bold, bruised bishop

Anglican Bishop Emeritus Peter Njenga who holds the record of the longest serving provost at the All Saints Cathedral has been described as ‘The Iron Bishop’ with nine lives in his book set to be launched on Thursday evening at the cathedral. The retired bishop is best remembered for housing the 18 women who championed the release of political prisoners movement as they camped at the all saints cathedral for 11 straight months until government released their sons and husbands from detention. Apart from his run-ins with the government, the retired bishop always speaks of betrayal by the very church he served with zeal and zest, his first wife dying by suicide at the cathedral, his near quitting church service as a result of the government accusing him of killing his wife and setting up an inquest in 1990 which is still in court 33 years later.

Duncan Khaemba interviewed the Bishop and in this special report, The Bold Bruised Bishop.
