, NAIROBI, Kenya, Nov 10 – Motivational speaker Myles Munroe who was in Kenya three weeks ago has been killed in a plane crash in the Bahamas alongside his wife and daughter.
The televangelist is reported to have died late Sunday on his way to the Global Leadership forum that was planned for November 10 to 13 at Freeport, Grand Bahamas, according to ABC News.
He was in a private Learjet with nine passengers when it crashed on approach near Grand Bahama International Airport, killing everyone on board.
The Lear 36 Executive Jet had taken off from the Bahamian capital of Nassau and crashed late Sunday, as it was coming in to land at Grand Bahama International Airport in Freeport.
Dr Munroe and his wife Ruth were killed in the crash, Kelley Jackson, a spokeswoman from the Andrew J. Young Foundation told ABC News.
Dr Munroe was in Kenya in late October for a major motivational speaking session, during which he was hosted by various local TV shows, including KTN’s Jeff Koinange Live where he gave a premonition of his death.
“I want to challenge every Kenyan to go to the cemetery and disappoint the graveyard. Die like the Apostle Paul who said I have finished my course, I have kept the faith and I have been poured out like a drink offering. There is nothing left. I am ready to die. That’s how I wanna die because there is nothing else for me left to die,” the Standard reported on what he told the show’s host, Jeff Koinange. “When you die, die like I am planning to die. Empty. It’s finished,” He added in the show.
Dr Munroe who is the founder of the Bahamas Faith Ministries is a writer, preacher, thinker, leader, publisher and motivational speaker.
