Former President Moi is Dead

Retired President Daniel Moi has died.

Reports indicate that President Uhuru Kenyatta shared a proclamation statement confirming the passing on of Moi.

The retired Head of State has ailing for a long time despite several admissions to hospital.

In October 2019, the former president was admitted to the Nairobi Hospital on Saturday after he developed breathing complications.

That was the second time in two weeks that the 95-year-old former president was being attended to at the city hospital.

The former President’s Press Secretary Lee Njiru at the time stated that Moi had been rushed to hospital on Monday for what was termed as a routine checkup.

“Yes, l can confirm that Mzee Moi visited The Nairobi Hospital for a routine medical check-up.

“It is prudent for any human being to undergo regular medical check-ups, so there is nothing to worry about,” remarked Njiru.

Njiru, however, avoided giving further information on the type of checkup the ailing ex-Head of State underwent at the facility.

In December 2018, the once Vice President during the reign of the late Mzee Jomo Kenyatta had been rushed to the same hospital for a similar routine checkup.

In May the same year, Moi had been taken ill at Ichilov Hospital in Tel Aviv, Israel, following a complaint of a previous knee injury.

The historic marker will be remembered for his achievements throughout his rule before it was ended in 2002 when he was replaced by the third president of the nation, Mwai Kibaki.
