TRIBUTES

It is with profound sadness and sorrow that I announce the passing of aGreat African Statesman,
H.E. Daniel Toroitich arap Moi, the Second President ofthe Republic of Kenya. His Excellency the Former President passed on at the NairobiHospital on the early morning of this 4th February, 2020 ; in the presence of his Family.
Our nation and our Continent were immensely blessed by the dedication and service of the Late Mzee Moi; who spent almost his entire adult life serving Kenya and Africa in a number of capacities. The Late Mzee Moi served us as an Educator, a Teacher, a Legislator, Member of Parliament, a Cabinet Minister, the Vice-President and finally as the President of the Republic of Kenya.

H.E. PRESIDENT UHURU KENYATTA

As a teacher-evangelist who improbably and reluctantly entered political leadership and excelled in it, Mzee had no time to prepare or learn outside the job. His genuine concern, selflessness, loyalty and sincerity however, enabled him to acquire staying power and attract the support of millions of patriots.

~ DEPUTY PRESIDENT DR. WILLIAM RUTO
