Members of Parliament from across the political divide shocked many in an unprecedented move where they harmoniously burst into songs and dance in honour of the late President Daniel Moi.
Just at the close of Monday’s public viewing of the body, the elated MPs quickly grouped into a choir to sing for Moi as his lifeless body snaked its way in a highly-guarded convoy of military vehicles.
When you thought it was over, the MPs began chanting the former benevolent strongman’s slogans as the military officers cleared the installations they had assembled at Parliament during the public viewing session.
