Kenyans have been warned against wearing political party branded attires during the burial of the late former President Daniel arap Moi in Kabarak, Nakuru County on Wednesday.

According to Rift Valley Regional Commissioner George Natembeya, if anyone feels they must wear political party clothing, then it must be branded KANU — Kenya’s oldest political party and which the late president Moi was affiliated to.

“This is not a political function, don’t come here with BBI t-shirts or any other,” Natembea said.

Natembeya said preparations for the ceremony are complete and they are expecting a minimum of 30,000 people to attend the burila.

Natembea however said only 500 people, mostly family members, will be allowed at the burial site.

The Regional Commissioner asked members of public planning to attend the funeral to be seated at the venue by 7 am, as the ceremony is expected to begin by 9am.

On Monday, Natembeya said each of the first 30,000 mourners will be handed a soda, bread, water and a programme of the event on arrival at the burial venue.

The Regional Commissioner disclosed that 30,000 seats have been hired and set up under a mega tent for members of public expected at the event. He, however, noted that there will be enough space to host even more people should the number exceed 30,000.

For transport logistics, Natembeya said all school buses in Nakuru County will be availed to ferry people from around the area to Kabarak, adding that the County Government will also chip in to provide more vehicles.

The vehicles are set to begin picking members of public from as early as 4.30am on Wednesday.

The grateful mum narrated how Peter Elegwa shielded her daughter from the danger in the dead of the night after she failed to make it home in time.

According to the Facebook user, her daughter was caught in traffic past curfew hours on Saturday, November 28.

The driver of the matatu she had boarded decided to drop the passengers before they reached their destinations.

The driver then turned away as he was not willing to spend one more minute on the God-forsaken road.

Kihangu’s daughter decided to trek the rest of the way despite it being pitch black outside.

It was around 10.30pm and the rain had started pouring so she had to consider seeking shelter while the rainfall subsided.

“She arrived at Shell Petrol Station and this guy sheltered her and provided my daughter with a seat as she waited for me to sort out her transportation,” the happy mum recalled.

Kihangu further explained that Peter made sure her daughter was safe till 11.15pm when a car was sent to pick her up.

The grave of 15-year-old Ian Kamau who was buried on Thursday, November 26, after losing the fight against COVID-19 was raided by suspected thieves who were reportedly looking for any valuables that many have been buried with the victim.

According to the residents who condemned the bizarre action, the suspected thieves did not touch the remains of the teenager or his coffin but left the grave ajar.

“This is not good at all. Those people were just uncovering the wounds of the family which is already trying to move on,” one resident told the media.

Officials from the Ministry of Health who arrived at the scene together with police officers said they will investigate the matter as they filled up the grave.

The locals also asked the law enforcers to beef up security around Ian’s graveyard and to enhance the lighting in the public cemetery.
