Bishop Bartholomew Manjoro’s wife Clara Apphia Manjoro has died. She was 68. Manjoro founded Faith World Ministries together with her husband.
According to a family spokesperson Pastor Bartholomew Manjoro, the ‘prophetess’ died on Tuesday night after a short illness.
“It is shocking how she has just left us after such a short illness. She was running around during Easter celebrations time and everything was well.
“She fell ill seven days ago and passed on yesterday night. It is something we had never anticipated would happen and as a family we will greatly miss her,” he said.
Together with Bishop Manjoro, the ‘prophetess’ formed Faith World Ministries in 1993. They also established the Faith World Bible College the following year.
They were known for their gospel which emphasised love, marriage and family unity. Prophetess Manjoro is survived by her husband, three children and four grandchildren.
Mourners are gathered at the Faith World Ministries church in Belvedere.
Manjoro is scheduled to be buried on Saturday in Nyabira.
