Deputy President William Ruto has lauded retired President Daniel Moi for retiring when his term ended.
While mourning the passing away of the second President of Kenya, Ruto said it Moi left an undeniable legacy- a challenge to the younger generation on nation building.
“The late Mzee Moi submitted himself to the presidential term limit thereby retiring when his time was up,” Ruto stated.
Addressing the media outside his Harambee House Annex on Tuesday, Ruto said Head of Public Service Joseph Kinyua will take over all the burial plans for the late head of state.
“As a teacher evangelist who tossed himself into politics, Mzee Moi excelled. His genuine concerns, loyalty and sincerity allowed him to attain power and attract massive support,” Ruto said.
Moi died peacefully on Tuesday at 5.20 am at the Nairobi Hospital where he had been receiving treatment at the age of 95.
