Kenya’s second president Daniel Toroitich Arap Moi is dead.
The announcement on Moi’s death was made on Tuesday morning by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
“Moi has been at the Nairobi Hospital since October 2019 and had not left the facility until his demise,” his Press Secretary Lee Njiru confirmed.
Njiru said the hospital wing where Moi was had been turned into a nursing home where medics attended to the retired president round the clock.
Njiru said he had seen a steady decline in Moi’s health over the last three years: from using a walking stick to being confined to a wheelchair.
Mr. Moi has been in and out of hospital for several years though he enjoyed good health during and after his presidency.
