Bruno Ruzuzi R.I.P.

Brothers, I’m sad to inform you of the death of our stagiaire Bruno Ruzuzi doing stage at Nyankpala parish Tamale. He was involved in an accident with our Theology student Salvator Mbonihankuye when returning from Tamale on their motorcycle in the night and collided with another vehicle (motorking). Bruno died on the spot and Salvator, injured, was admitted at the Tamale teaching hospital. We are going to the mortuary Where the body of Bruno will be laid to rest until the funerals. Pray for Bruno, pray for his family and all of us.

It is with these words that John Aserbire, Superior Provincial of Ghana Nigeria, announced the accident through the GhN WhatsApp network this morning. From all of us in Rome, best condolences to Bruno’s family, to his community, to the parishioners of Nyankpala Parish and to the Provinces of GhN and PAC. We prayed for him during our morning mass. Our best wishes of speedy recovery to Salvator Mbonihankuye.
