Catholic church leaders have revealed that no postmortem will be conducted on the body of Bishop Cornelious Korir who died on October 29 after a short illness.

Homa Bay Catholic Diocese Bishop Philip Anyola said they already know what killed Bishop Korir and there is no need for an autopsy.

“The burial committee has seen no need to conduct the autopsy since Korir died of diabetes and high blood pressure,” said Anyola.

Anyola further said they have already set November 11, 2017 as the funeral date and preparations are underway for the memorial service which will be held at Eldoret Sports Club.

Bishop Korir, who died at 67, has been describe by many as a “peace maker” for his role in fostering peace in the volatile Kerio Valley and was always outspoken on issues that were likely to bring division in the country.
