Uhuru Takes Charge of Mzee Moi's Burial Plans
President Uhuru Kenyatta on Sunday made an impromptu inspection of the Nyayo National Stadium, the venue for Tuesday’s memorial service, as he takes personal charge of preparations for former President Daniel arap Moi’s final journey.
This came as it emerged that the body will be flown directly to the Kabarak University grounds on Wednesday morning for a requiem service before it is interred at his home, a stone’s throw away.
Interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho also toured the former president’s home, where he inspected the gravesite as the government indicated it was leaving nothing to chance to give Kenya’s second president a befitting send-off.
About 10 Heads of State have confirmed they will attend the Nyayo Stadium inter-denominational memorial service, which will be led by the Africa Inland Church (AIC).
