Must read

President Uhuru Kenyatta and Opposition leader Raila Odinga will attend the first anniversary for the late President Daniel Moi at Kabarak.

The memorial service will be held at Kabarak where dignitaries have been invited.

Daniel Moi, Kenya’s longest-serving President, died on February 4, 2020 at the age of 95.

The Head of State ordered the flag of Kenya to be flown half-mast as an expression of sorrow.

President Kenyatta eulogized Moi as one of Africa’s greatest, a man who made Kenya and the continent immeasurably better.

Moi took over as president in 1978 after the sudden death of First president Mzee Jomo Kenyatta.

He served as a teacher, a legislator, MP, Cabinet Minister, Vice President, and finally president of Kenya.

Moi stepped down in 2002 after being constitutionally barred from running for a further term.
