President Uhuru, leaders from all walks of life among them DP William Ruto, former President Mwai Kibaki and thousands of kenyans whi have traveled from all over the country to view the Moi’s remains at Parliament Buildings.
The opposition leader Raila Odinga is the only senior politician, who hasn’t puclicly viewed the body of his one-time rival.
It is however not known whether it was by design or by unavoidable official duties that when Uhuru came to lead the public to view the body, Raila proceeded to Addis for an African Union event.
However, while signing the late Moi’s condolence book in Addis, Raila said he would soon join Kenyans in Nairobi and Kabarak in mourning the former president.
The opposition chief was allegedly involved in the failed 1982 coup and was consequently sent to jail by Moi’s administration for six years.
