Moi’s Body Viewing: Media Barred From Showing Kibaki’s Pictures in Parliament

Former President Mwai Kibaki

Former President Mwai Kibaki was one of the mourners at the Parliament Buildings on Sunday to view the body of his predecessor Daniel Moi.

Viewing of Mzee Moi’s body was halted briefly for the public at Parliament buildings to allow Kibaki to pay his last respect to the man he once served under as Vice President.

Earlier reports, however, indicated that the media was not allowed to broadcast the arrival of the country’s third president at parliament.

Sunday is the second day when Kenyans are being allowed to view the body which lie-in-state for three days until Monday, Feb 10.

Among other leaders expected to view the body on Sunday is ODM chief Raila Odinga, who was away on official duty in Ethiopia on Saturday when the exercise began.

The body arrived at Parliament Buildings from Lee Funeral Home on Saturday morning for public viewing.

Kenyans willing to pay their last respects to Kenya’s longest-serving president will be free to do so throughout the weekend.

On Tuesday, Kenyans will observe a public holiday ahead of Moi’s state funeral, which will take place at his Kabarak home on Wednesday, February 12.
