Celebrated preacher Bishop Allan Kiuna succumbs to cancer


Celebrated preacher and founder of Jubilee Christian Church (JCC) has passed on after battling cancer since 2019.

His death came as a shock to many after the Bishop who underwent multiple myeloma cancer treatment in the US for a year declared he was cancer-free.

Bishop Kiuna made the announcement last year on December 10 when he celebrated his 29th marriage anniversary and 57th birthday.

The First Lady, Rachel Ruto, and Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua’s wife, Pastor Dorcas, attended the thanksgiving ceremony, among other politicians in the country.

What is MM

Multiple myeloma is a type of blood cancer that develops in the bone marrow when plasma cells become cancerous. Plasma cells are white blood cells that normally produce antibodies to help the body fight infection.

In multiple myeloma, the cancerous plasma cells, called myeloma cells, crowd out normal cells and produce an abnormal antibody called M protein.

This buildup can affect multiple areas of the body, including the spine, skull, pelvis, and ribs, which is why it’s called multiple myeloma.
