What you need to know:

  • The funeral will include pallbearers from the military, a number of gun salutes, renditions from KDF bands and choirs and chaplains chosen from the military and the religious groups.

  • There is, however, a question of where Moi will be buried. During the burial of his wife, Lena, in 2004, Moi expressed his wish to be buried next to her in Kabarak “when my time comes”.

President Uhuru Kenyatta’s proclamation that former President Daniel arap Moi is to be buried in full civilian and military honours has set in motion elaborate and complex procedures whose end will be a grand ceremony that will be witnessed for the second time in Kenya.
