Bishop Korir will be remembered as a peacemaker having played a pivotal role in quelling tensions in Eldoret and the larger Rift Valley in 2007

Renowned Catholic Bishop Cornelius Korir who died last week will be laid to rest at the Sacred Heart Cathedral in Eldoret, Uasin Gishu County Satuday.

The body left the church at 8am to the Eldoret Sports Club Grounds where a burial mass is currently undergoing and expected to end at midday.

Those in attendance include President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto.

The cortege will leave for burial inside the church at around 3pm where only accredited people will be allowed in. At least 3,000 people are expected at the church grounds.

On Friday thousands of Catholic faithful and other mourners converged at the Sacred Heart of Jesus Cathedral in Eldoret Town to view the body of the late Bishop Korir.

Uasin Gishu Governor Jackson Mandago and his Nandi counterpart Stephen Sang led other leaders in paying their last respect to the late Bishop.

Meanwhile, two people were injured on Saturday after an LCD screen set up for the public to follow proceedings at Bishop Cornelius Korir’s burial fell on them.

It crushed on a section of the crowd a few meters from where DP William Ruto and some bishops were waiting to receive President Uhuru Kenyatta. Strong winds pushed the large screen which was hoisted on huge metal beams.

The injured, who are among the orderlies at the event, were rushed to Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital.

There was a stampede as officials and Red Cross workers rushed to save the injured who were trapped under the heavy me tals.
