President Uhuru Kenyatta has met with former former Head of State Daniel Moi.
Sources indicate that the two leaders are currently at the funeral of the late Mrs. Sarah Kasaon in Rongai, Nakuru.
She was the wife of Lieutenant General Joseph Kasaon, former Kenya Defence Forces Vice Chief.
According to acting Press Secretary Alex Kiprotich, President Uhuru Kenyatta held a closed door meeting with Mr. Moi.
“The President wished Mzee Moi well,” the statement reads.
Mzee Moi on his part thanked the President for steering the country towards unity.
Present during the meeting was Baringo Senator Gideon Moi.
DP Ruto was not present at the meeting but joined President Kenyatta later at the Rongai funeral.
The DP is expected to leave Kabarak later this afternoon and head to Murang’a.
”The Deputy President will be attending the homecoming of Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro,” the DP’s Spokesperson David Mugonyi said on phone.
Earlier we had erroneously indicated that DP Ruto accompanied President Uhuru Kenyatta to visit Mr. Moi. We have since established that he was not present for the meeting but only went for Mrs. Sarah Kasaon’s funeral.
