Our country is in mourning today following the death of Kenya’s longest serving president. Rtd. President Daniel arap Moi was in and out of hospital for months. For some citizens, President Moi was the best leader the country has ever had. However, some section feel his leadership was dictatorial.
When I was born he was already the president. There was a lot of political fanaticism around the area where I was born. But for some strange reason I was never interested in politics. My memories of him as a child revolved around the free milk we would get at school. Above all else, I had a special liking for him because we shared the same birthday ~ 2nd September.
My heartfelt condolences to his family, friends and the entire nation. Till we meet again birthday-mate.
Eternal rest grant him oh Lord and let your perpetual light shine upon him, may his soul rest in peace, Amen.
