A postmortem examination won’t be conducted on the late Bishop Cornelius Korir of the Eldoret Catholic Diocese, Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Homa Bay, Philip Anyolo, says.
Bishop Anyolo said since the cause of death of Bishop Korir is known, there is no need to perform an autopsy on the deceased.
“The burial committee sees no need to perform a postmortem examination on Bishop Korir because it has been established that he succumbed to diabetes and high blood pressure,” said Bishop Anyolo, who is in Eldoret.
“The ailment had not been diagnosed prior to his hospitalisation,” added Bishop Anyolo.
Bishop Anyolo said Bishop Korir will be laid to rest on November 11 in Eldoret.
“Preparations are underway for memorial service at Sports Club in Eldoret town,” he said.
Bishop Korir died on Monday, October 30, aged 67.
