Moi’s death comes at a critical time when the country is mourning the death of 13 Kakamega Primary School Children who died in a stampede on Monday evening.
Rest in Peace Baba Moi. I remember fondly how you used to stop by Toi Primary school nearly every morning when I was only 9 years old & talk to us. You gave us maziwa ya Nyayo & the spirit of Love, Peace & Unity which we now crave for. You were a statesman & patriotic African. pic.twitter.com/ok6LvKfFfG
