Investigation continues in case of Ghanaian Catholic Priest Killed In Kenya

.- Investigations continue into the case of Fr. Martin Addai, 46, who was shot on March 10, while driving from the residence of the Society of the Missionaries of Africa to Mombasa Road. His car was hijacked by his assailants, who then shot him dead.

The killers have not yet been identified but the hijacked car was discovered two days after the shooting.

Several news sources have reported Br. Anthony Baaladong, Superior for the Missionaries of Africa in Kenya, saying that the Kenya Police would issue a comprehensive report on their investigations into Fr. Addai’s murder soon.

The funeral mass for Fr. Addai was held March 31. According to The Independent Catholic News, hundreds of people attended the mass in Nairobi. The apostolic nuncio to Kenya, Archbishop Alain Paul Lebeaupin, and Archbishop Ndingi Mwana 'aNzeki of Nairobi, presided at the mass.

Fr. Addai was Ghanian. He joined the Missionaries of Africa after his secondary education in Kumasi, and worked in Mozambique and Ghana after studies in Rome and Canada.

In Kenya, he served as Seminary Rector and lecturer in Medical Ethics at Tangaza College, part of the Catholic University of East Africa.
