The Bishop of the diocese of Malindi, Emmanuel Barbara, died in the kenyan town this morning.
He had been a heart disease for some time, but he had remained head of his diocesan office until yesterday and some faithful had met him recently for the wishes of the New Year. The death of the Bishop would be caused by a heart attack.
The announcement was made directly by the Catholic Diocese of Malindi.
"We are shocked by the sudden death of our beloved Bishop, Monsignor Emmanuel Barbara, this morning - writes the press office of the Diocese in its social pages - we pray for the peace of his soul".
Monsignor Barbara, Maltese like his predecessor Francis Baldacchino, the first Bishop of Malindi's history, was nominated in 2011 as head of the district under the influence of Pope Benedict XVI.
Ordained deacon in 1973, he was on the coast of Kenya since 2008. In 2013 he had also taken over the regency of the Archbishopric of Mombasa, in that vacant period.
Many Italians, holiday residents and volunteers of associations, had with him a relationship not only of collaboration and religious sharing, but also of friendship.
