Bereaved Baringo Senator Moi stood out from the crowd yesterday.
Not because he is both a son and the hier to late former President Moi legacy but due to his passion and pathos during the National Prayer service held at Nyayo Stadium yesterday.
As he spoke in rememberance of the times of his late Dad, Gideon Moi was moved by grief and yet passion, and an outpouring compassion and love for the people of Kenya.
He said that his late father hated dishonesty in all its manifestations, but was always ready to forgive.
It is this outstanding character that he exuded, both in public and in private, that endeared him to the people.
Today, we bid farewell to the man I call my father, mentor and a friend, the late Daniel Toroitich arap Moi.
Lala Salama Mzee!
