Photos of photos of President Uhuru Kenyatta holding talks with the former President Daniel Arap Moi surfaced on social media hours after the family declared they would not be receiving any visitors.
On Sunday, Moi family, through Lee Njiru, said that the aging former president would not receive any visitor throughout the mourning period.
“We the family of H.E Mzee Moi confirm the sad news on the passing on of Jonathan Toroitich. Jonathan will be remembered for his daring exploits in the racing tracks, in muddy and dusty tracks, during this time of Easter.He was amiable, social and down – to – earth and industrious human being,” read the statement.
“We are distraught as family and we ask for your prayers and seek your understanding and indulgence to allow us mourn privately.We will continue to inform Kenyans on need basis and further arrangements,” Gideon added.
Mr Moi died on Saturday at Medheal Hospital in Nakuru with the family saying he’d been battling Pancreatic Cancer. He was aged 64 at the time of his death.
