“Two things that necessitated taking this bold step are that one, I am now old and I have not yet been baptised, yet I am a Christian and a staunch AIC follower.

“The second reason is that we must be ready since you do not know when your time to leave this world will come,” he said.

Kibor, who is popularly referred to as the men’s conference chairman, urged more youth to follow in his footsteps and get baptised.

“I am the chairman of everything, so I know better and when I say that you should be ready and accept to be baptised and saved, then I know that it is right,” he said.
