Who is Fr Makau?
I am a Consolata missionary, a religious for the last 20 years and a priest for 15 years. I did my formation here in Kenya, and my theology in the Democratic Republic of Congo. When I was ordained I was sent to work in Venezuela where I was for the last 14 years. I was then sent here to Kenya as the Regional Superior.
