Kenyan Man’s Search for his Father Runs into Church Cover-up

SAMBURU, Kenya (AP) — An Italian missionary priest allegedly impregnated a Kenyan girl when she was just 16. But the priest _ who to this day denies paternity _ was transferred by his superiors, and a Kenyan man was found for the girl to marry. The Catholic Church’s efforts to conceal what is alleged to have happened in Kenya would stretch over three decades and stymie a Kenyan man’s efforts to find out why he was so much lighter-skinned than his siblings.
