Staunch Adventist Maraga skips church to attend Jonathan funeral as Uhuru,Moi miss in action

Chief Justice David Maraga today opted to disappoints his gods after he failed to attend the church service as usual but instead mourned with the Moi family.

Justice Maraga, while appearing before the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) for the interview of the Chief Justice position, vowed never to compromise his Seventh Day Adventist beliefs to attend to work on a Saturday.

He said he could only miss church to attend to a matter of life and death, for instance an accident happening on his way to church in which he would stop to help the victims.

Maraga condoled with the Moi Family and requested God to give the family strength during the hard times.

President Uhuru Kenyatta and opposition chief Raila Odinga are not in attendance as they are away in China.

Uhuru’s brother Mr Muhoho in his speech said that Uhuru couldn’t afford to attend due to the official duty accompanied by former prime minister.

Mr Jonathan Moi succumbed to pancreatic cancer on April 20 while receiving treatment at Nakuru War Memorial Hospital.

Family sources also indicated that Mzee Moi 95, will not attend his son’s service at Kabimoi, Eldama Ravine, Baringo county.

He was however been seen receiving condolence messages at his Kabarak residence since the demise of Jonathan on Saturday.

Among those present at the service included Deputy President William Ruto, Chief Justice David Maraga, Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka, ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi and CS Eugene Wamalwa.

Others were Maendeleo ya Wanawake Chairperson Zipporah Kittony, Senate Speaker Kenneth Lusaka, Governors Wycliffe Oparanya (Kakamega), Stanley Kiptis (Baringo) MPs William Cheptumo (Baringo North) and Moses Lessonet (Eldama Ravine).
