Earlier on, his family had announced that the burial date for the deceased would be revealed by the government.
During a presser, the eldest son, Rongai MP Raymond Moi, explained that the reason behind the decision was due to the funeral being handled by the administration.
The lawmaker further regarded that the retired Moi is expected to be laid to rest at his home in Kabarak.
“It is a state funeral now. It has been taken over by the government hence a military affair. We still can’t give you the exact dates until we liaise with them. I think those dates will be issued by them,” pronounced the lawmaker.
Moi passed on at around 5 am at Nairobi Hospital where he had been undergoing treatment.
An emotional Baringo Senator Gideon Moi stated that he was beside his father when he left this world.
Gideon reiterated that the ex-KANU party leader died peacefully after a long spell of sickness.
Lee Njiru, the late Moi’s press secretary disclosed that his health had deteriorated despite the numerous check-ups.
