Moi was ready for death

Africa Inland Church retired presiding bishop Silas Yego said during his service that Moi was ready for death.

He described Moi as a devout Christian who was in touch with his faith.

“He knew where he was going…Mzee Moi is in the hands of his creator. He loved salvation so much,” Yego is quoted as saying by Daily Nation.

The retired church leader noted that the former Head of State would often tell people to get saved.

He also said that Moi was not a proud man, but was humble despite his success.

He noted his contributions towards girls’ schools, while asking those gathered to emulate his generosity and urged politicians to be united.
