Former Kenyan President Daniel Toroitich Arap Moi died peacefully in his sleep on the morning of Tuesday, February 4. The retired president passed on at the age of 96 years.
Apart from being an accomplished politician, Moi was also an ardent sports lover, football in particular.
In a documentary aired years ago profiling his life, one of his teachers noted that Moi was a very good footballer while in primary school.
His love for football never subsided once he became president and could be seen on many occasions attending football matches.
He even had a tournament named after him, the Moi Golden Cup. Whisper it quietly but it was rumoured that Moi was a die-hard Gor Mahia fan.
Below are seven images of the late Head of State joined the regular football fan to enjoy the emotions that the beautiful game evokes on people.
