Today I want us to look at the current Archbishop of Nyeri Rev. Father Anthony Muheria. He was born in 1963, Kaburugi village in Murang'a County. He's brother to the current manager in Central Bank if Kenya, Patrick Njoroge.
After highschool he didn't join seminary as most priests do. Muheria joined the University of Nairobi where he pursued bachelor of science in civil engineering. He worked as an engineer for five years.
The call for priesthood was still fresh mind and pushed him to quit engineering. He joined Opus dei and was sent to Pontifical University of the holy cross. Here he attained a degree in theology which made him be ordained as a priest.
After ordination, Anthony served in Embu diocese as the bishop in 2003. Later in 2008 he was given another role of being the apostolic administrator in Kitui/Machakos diocese. The spirit of leadership always led him until 2017 when the pope promoted him to be the archbishop of Nyeri.
We've witnessed his great contributions to the church through supporting construction of various worship places. While serving in Kitui he established the start of the current St. Marian shrine. Right now he's among the top church leaders initiating the reconciliation process between Uhuru and Ruto.
He has also been the best supporter in providing employment opportunities for youths. One of the achievements being establishment of Caritas project for the young people to help themselves in growing businesses. We'll always raise flags to praise him for serving christians wholeheartedly without discrimination.
