The visit by Atwoli comes barely a week after the country celebrated Moi Day, a public holiday in honour of the former Head of State.
According to a statement from Moi’s acting press secretary Alex Kiprotich sent on October 10, 2018, the retired Commander-in-Chief marked Moi Day quietly at his Kabarak home with family and friends.
