Passing of Retired President

By Rose Aboka

“It is with profound sorrow that I announce the passing of a Great African Statesman” said President Kenyatta.

The 2nd President of Kenya was admitted at the Nairobi Hospital in October 2019 where he was put in life support. At 5:20 Am, former president Moi took his last breath at the Nairobi Hospital.

The body was later taken to Lee funeral home.

In his proclamation, President Uhuru ordered a period of national mourning until the former president Moi’s body is laid to rest.

The former president will be accorded a state funeral with all appropriate civilians with full military honors being rendered and observed.

As an expression of public sorrow, the Kenyan flag will be flown at half-mast in all government institutions including those abroad.
