MOI BURIAL: Special Treatment for First 30,000 Mourners at Kabarak

The government has released the programme for the burial of retired President Daniel arap Moi tomorrow, 12th February.

Thousands of Kenyans are expected to attend the final send-off of Mzee Moi at Kabarak University, which neighbours his Kabarak home in Nakuru County.

Part of the programme is a special package for the first 30,000 mourners.

According to Rift Valley Regional Commissioner George Natembeya, the early arrivals will have seats and after the event they will be served with special meals.

“We expect many people but only the first 30,000 will enjoy some kind of special treatment. They will have mineral water and will be served with foods later.

“You know Mzee was generous and he would like us to share even when he is gone. Safe Journey to those who will be travelling here,” Natembeya said.

He had earlier revealed that the cooking of the food began this evening with more than 50 bulls having been slaughtered.

Meanwhile, he also asked the general public to be orderly and follow all the instructions from the security personnel.

“You are aware this area will be cordoned off by the authorities. For your own good, just cooperate and let’s do our work,” he said.

Mzee Moi will be accorded a state funeral and honoured with a 19-gun salute by the military.
