President Uhuru remarked that the country had lost a very important person.
In his moving speech, he questioned how one mourns a leader of Moi’s calibre.
The Jubilee party leader articulated that the once Vice-president of the country had devoted his life to ensuring the prosperity of the nation.
“The question that we should all ask ourselves is how does one mourn an iconic leader? A leader who spent almost his entire life in the service of our nation and whose story of heroism, sacrifice and service begun in the pre-independence era,” stated Uhuru.
