A video has emerged online of Kenyans mocking the body viewing of the late former president Daniel Moi currently underway at the Parliament Buildings.
The video, which was shared online by a Twitter user, Wayne Brian, shows three young Kenyans mocking the proceedings by bowing down to the TV as the public pay their last respects to the former Head of State.

This comes just a day after another Kenyan lit up the mood at Parliament after he pretended to call President Uhuru Kenyatta to complain about the slow pace of the queue.
The man, identified as Peter Njenga, alias MC Naswa, was heard speaking in Kikuyu dialect asking the president to make the line move faster so that he and the rest could view the body.
“Hallo your excellency sir is it Uhuru, how are you? We queued here for too long. Why have they taken too much time to view the body yet so many people are here waiting? Kindly hurry up so that we can also get a chance.… Pass the phone to Matiang’i. How are you Matiang’i? We are suffering out here, kindly hurry up in viewing the body so that we can also have the chance,” Njenga said.

On Sunday morning, Kenyans lined up in Nairobi’s streets from as early as 4:00 am for the second day to view the body of the country’s former President whose remains were brought at Parliament Buildings from Lee Funeral Home at 6:00 am.
President Uhuru and first lady Margaret Kenyatta were the first to view the body on Saturday, before other Kenyans, got their chance.
Among those expected to view the body on Sunday are several leaders, including ODM leader Raila Odinga who was on official duty in Ethiopia on Saturday.
Kenyans have until Monday to pay their last respects at Parliament after which a requiem mass will be held for the former head of state on Tuesday at Nyayo Stadium before being buried on Wednesday at his Kabarak home.
