What you need to know:

  • The sittings were to resume on Tuesday, following a month's recess, but that is the day when the public will attend a service to honour Moi at Nyayo National Stadium in Nairobi.
  • The Senate has called a special sitting on Monday to deliberate on whether it will resume normal sittings as had earlier been planned.
  • The Nairobi County assembly, whose sittings were to resume on Tuesday, has also adjourned its plenary sessions to February 18 to allow mourning.
  • The Nyandarua, Kericho and Marsabit assemblies have also pushed their sittings to February 13 at 2.30pm, a day after Moi's burial.

The Senate and counties have rescheduled their sittings in light of traditions of mourning former President Daniel Toroitich arap Moi ahead of his burial on Wednesday.
