The body of former president Daniel Moi has left Lee Funeral Home on Saturday morning for Parliament Buildings.
Kenyans will now have the opportunity to view the body of the former president starting today (Saturday) until Monday where his body will be lying in state at Parliament.
The first viewing of the body will be done by President Uhuru Kenyatta at 10.15 am. Moi’s body was moved from Lee Funeral home at 7 am with the casket draped in the national flag.
The procession moved at a slow pace as it made its way to Parliament buildings along Valley Road.
Once the viewing period is over, the funeral service will be conducted at Nyayo Stadium on February 11. The government released a gazette notice through the Interior Ministry declaring that day a public holiday.
During the burial ceremony, Mzee Moi will be honoured with a 19-gun salute rather than a 21-gun salute which is reserved for presidents who die while still in power.
