Moi to be buried on Wednesday, February 12

The late retired President Daniel Arap Moi will be buried at his Kabarak home on Wednesday, February 12, his family has confirmed.

Tiaty MP William Kamket who is part of the funeral committee says a funeral service will be held at the Kasarani Stadium on Tuesday.

Mzee Moi died after a 3-month stay at the Nairobi Hospital where he was under the care of specialists.

The announcement on his death was made on Tuesday morning by President Uhuru Kenyatta through a statement.

“Moi has been at the Nairobi Hospital since October 2019 and had not left the facility until his demise,” his Press Secretary Lee Njiru confirmed.

Njiru said the hospital wing where Moi was had been turned into a nursing home where medics attended to the retired president round the clock.

He added that  he had seen a steady decline in Moi’s health over the last three years: from using a walking stick to being confined to a wheelchair.

Mr. Moi has been in and out of hospital for several years though he enjoyed good health during and after his presidency.
