  • Description

    In a service at the Presbyterian Church in Nairobi Mar 14, 60-year old Charles Muhoro Kareri, a one-time Kikuyu hard-boy, was elected Moderator of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church of East Africa. He succeeds the Rt. Reverend R. Macphearson, who is retiring after 57-years of mission work.

    Among the many people attending the service, and offering their congratulations to Reverend Muhoro, were James Gichuru, President of the Kenya African Nationalist Union, and the Governor, Sir Patrick Renison.

    Born into a non-Christian home near Tumutumu in the Nyeri district, the new Moderator said that when he was a child he spent all his time looking after his father's goats and sheep. Two African missionaries came to his home and talked to his father "who was a drunkard" and took him away to school.
