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

I am grateful for the time I spent with him. At this moment of mourning, our hearts and prayers are with the family and the entire Moi clan.

~ H.E. RAILA ODINGA, EGH

~ PS DR. ENG. KARANJA KIBICHO

Through his leadership Kenya enjoyed a high level of cohesion among its communities and interest groups, irrespective of their size, and an enduring stability as a country.

May his light shine brightly as he enjoys a peaceful rest.

HON. SIMEON NYACHAE, EGH

Heartfelt condolences to family and friends of the late former President, H.E , Daniel Arap Moi. His Vision for Kenya was remarkable.  He was indeed an inspiration to us all. Rest in peace , Mzee Moi.

Mr. Jerome Ochieng – PS, ICT & Innovation – Ministry of ICT

For 24 years H.E. President Daniel Arap Moi made a mark on the life of every Kenyan.
I will remember him for three things:

1. Education: Mzee transformed education from being a privilege for the elite to a benefit accessible to all Kenyans. He championed girls’ education and built a foundation that has enabled women to take their place in national affairs.

2. Energy and Participation: Mzee penetrated every part of Kenya, stopping several times on each journey to greet the public.  His phenomenal energy and love of life was evident as he vibrantly strode through several events every day of his presidency.

3. Sense of humour: Mzee loved a joke and could often be observed laughing heartily, sometimes to the point of shedding tears! Even when comedians cheekily took the liberty of caricaturing him, he never took offence but instead joined in the laughter!

Rest in peace, Your Excellency.

Dr. Katherine Getao - CEO ICT Authority

Nilikunywa maziwa ya Nyayo. Fare Thee Well, Mzee!

May Mzee rest in paradise till we meet again. RIP MOI

My condolences.

Mzee Moi was a champion of peace and harmony in this country.

He was a generous man whose acts of benevolence touched many.

May he rest in eternal peace.

Jacob Mutinda

Everyone must leave something behind when he dies, my grandfather said. A child or a book or a painting or a house or a wall built or a pair of shoes made. Or a garden planted. Something your hand touched some way so your soul has somewhere to go when you die, and when people look at that tree or that flower you planted, you’re there. ~ Ray Bradbury.

Your love, peace and Unity you bestowed on our country men and women will forever be with us. Thank you and may you Rest in Peace Baba Moi.

Dennis Cheruiyot

I was a baby during your time…I only know you as a grandpa…I haven’t seen you being bad…So all I have is good memories of you…RIP H.E Daniel Arap Moi❤️❤️❤️

James Muriithi

For most of us that grew up during his reign, a mark of identity that Moi has left will never be erased. Straight and fast walk during military parades, the off the-cuff Kiswahili speeches, loyalty to his country, and the love for children. I will never forget how we looked forward to hear what Moi had to say during the lunch time VOK news.
My sincere condolences to his family. My advice to you to….accept, adapt and advance.

Stephen Ndung'u

Your Excellency Sir,

Fare thee well. You fought a good fight, kept the faith and finished the race. My memories of you will remain forever and I will pass them to my two young children (now 4 years & 2 years).

My first interaction with you was at Naivasha stadium in 1992 after you had addressed a gathering. I attended the nearby Naivasha Boys Boarding School. I got lost in the crowd, our eyes met and I vividly remember your kind face looking back at me. Second time was a rainy Sunday afternoon in 2002 as you headed to Kirigiti Stadium in Kiambu for a political rally of then Kanu candidate, now HE president Uhuru Kenyatta. Again you oozed an aura of calmness and grace.

We will definitely miss you. Till we meet again, so long.

Peter Mbugua

His legacy will remain in the history of Kenya. A teacher and a role model to our current leaders. We should keep his motto of preaching peace as he did everywhere he went,” Natukae kwa amani”.We loved him very much but God did his wish. May his soul rest in peace.

Ephraim Kariuki

The Late President Daniel Arap Moi was a true statesman and an educationist. I remember him for building gabions and championing the prevention of soil erosion, the Nyayo school milk and his parade marching skills among others. We shall live to remember him and his philosophy of Peace, Love and Unity when he led KANU for many years. #RIP Mzee #RIP Nyayo

Martin Leon Wabwire

It is with great sadness that I learnt of the passing on of H.E President Daniel Toroitich Arap Moi whom I knew while I was a young boy. I remember at one point he gave my grandfather Nyawansa (Nicodemus Arasa) a job as a Principal Secretary and we feasted a lot.  One time he came to Kisii and he ordered us to be given a 20/= note (by then a lot of money) and I used it to buy a new pair of shoes, lots of mandazi and madondo and kept some as pocket change for school.  What I loved most was how he inspected the guards of honor. At 80+ he was still as fit as a fiddle.

I will miss MOI.

Ong'era Boniface

RIP Mzee Moi. I am deeply saddened by the loss of such a charming and peaceful retired president.

He transformed the country into a powerhouse in East Africa, Africa and the world.

His philosophy of Peace Love and Unity was unforgettable.

He built Nyayo wards across the country, schools, and universities. He provided maziwa ya nyayo in schools.

A God fearing president, he interacted with rich and poor alike. I vividly remember when Moi gave me 10,000/- when I was in high school.=

I will dearly miss you our beloved president. Kwaheri.

RIP Baba Moi.

Jane Serem

Rest In Peace

I remember when you visited our school, Kijabe Girls, and found us fetching water from a river. You declared that we shall never do that again and subsequently initiated a water project and built a dining hall! Thank you!!! Go well. We shall meet in heaven.

We will remember him for urging Kenyans to be proud of their country, respect each other and to love one another.

He had a great passion for education and made major contributions to the sector.

His Nyayo philosophy, which meant following in the footsteps of Mzee Jomo Kenyatta coupled with his values of Peace, Love, and Unity made Kenya a great nation.

May Almighty God rest his soul in eternal peace.

POEM IN HONOUR OF FORMER PRESIDENT araap MOI

Today,

I want to sing one last time,

I want to shake and point one finger salute again like I did in his time of presidency,

I want to stand at an attention by the roadside in his honour,

Today the Tawala song is ringing in my mind like those old days,

I’m taken aback to view the archives in my photographic mind,

And every occurrence rolls down like the Kenyan newsreel.

The man who is draped today in our national flag had stood tall to see far like a giraffe,

He had held firm a country with fimbo ya Nyayo,

He had instilled in us the essence of patriotism.

I want to recite once again my loyalty pledge,

That I will forever remember you,

That I will forever remember that Kanu was Baba na Mama,

That I will not forget the sweet milk of Nyayo,

That I will not forget that I went to a great school with your name,

That I used the money with your portrait for many decades.

As you lay in state great leader

I will sing today one more time,

The great song of peace,

The great song of love,

The great song of unity,

I will sing today in your memory the great song of peace as you lay in state before your final journey to your resting place overlooking the great lake with the pink flamingoes.

We mourn with the family but we also celebrate countless achievements of this great icon.
I only came to learn of H.E Moi in 2002 when I was in pre-unit. Even though I was not raised under his regime, I benefited from his better healthcare and schools.

Thank you for honoring the Wasike family by appointing Dad as the second permanent Secretary from Bungoma in 1988. Thank you for believing in him.
Thank you for the school milk, and above all for showing the Nation what the fear of the Lord meant. Thank you for handing over power peacefully in 2002 in the midst of intense provocation and insults, thank you for forgiveness, thank you for your Humility. Mzee Moi, we love you even in death. Go well, rest in peace.

Wasike Echakara

The former president visited my family in 1984 when I was 4 years old. My father was not a politician but a friend. He shared a meal with my father which was served to him by my mother. He actually suggested for a photo together with our family members and few invited neighbors. That shows humility at all levels. May God rest him in eternal peace.

Francis Ndung'u

Baba Moi,

I pray that your beloved family find peace in your transition. May God protect and guide them into this new path by setting an even better example to our generations and those to come.

Rest in Peace my former President. I grew up in President Moi’s neighborhood, Mang’u farm, and we met him often. As we grew up we enjoyed his hospitality because he could pass by with goodies like biscuits and sweets. Now I normally wonder how come he always had something for us when he went round his big farm. The only answer is, he loved children.

I later was privileged to be admitted at Kabarak High School, where I continued to enjoy his hospitality and where I met fellow students from all over the country. We got the Best.

He loved God and he made sure our spiritual growth was also well taken care of.

Rest in Peace.

Ningependa kutuma risala zangu za rambirambi kwa jamii na Wakenya wote kutokana na kifo cha Rais wetu wa pili wa Jamhuri ya Kenya mstaafu Daniel Toitich Arap Moi. Mie binafsi na familia yangu tumeungana na Wakenya kuomboleza kifo cha Rais huyo mstaafu.
Nilimjua Moi 1973 nikiwa shule ya Chekechea kule Nakuru Blanket aliposimama karibu nami Rais wa Kwanza Jomo Kenyatta akipita kutoka Nairobi akija Nakuru, nilimpenda Moi kwa roho yangu yote. Mungu ailaze roho yake mahali pa takatifu. RIP Baba Moi

To God we pray
