The late former President Daniel Moi’s Will has surfaced. According to a report by People Daily, the former head of state had divided the properties to all his children both dead and alive.
Speaking to the publication, retired AIC Bishop Silas Yego stated the former president had shared out his properties to all his dependants before he became ill.
The bishop further pointed out that the former president had taken a considerable amount of time in preparing the document to ensure that his children received enough share according to his wishes.
“This was something that he did sometimes back before his condition deteriorated and lost his voice. He made sure he shared out his property among all his children and dependants.
“The Will was deposited with one of his lawyers that I cannot tell you,” stated the former Bishop.
Mzee Moi had eight children including Jennifer, Jonathan, Raymond, Philip, John Mark, Doris, June and Gideon.
Yego, who was the late leader’s spiritual leader and was considered his close confidant, further disclosed that Moi did not want his children to squabble over the property in his absence.
“We have informed the government about the former President’s wish and we hope that they will abide by it,” continued Yego.
Moi’s properties traversed many sectors including large-scale farming, banking, real estate, transport and logistics, education and media.
A team that was appointed to prepare for a state funeral for Moi disclosed on Wednesday, February 5, that the public would be allowed to view his remains for three days at Parliament Buildings.
Government spokesman Col (rtd) Cyrus Oguna, however, noted that Head of Public Service Joseph Kinyua, who heads the team, will release a comprehensive statement later.
“As we all know, this is going to be an elaborate State funeral that everything needs to be planned well. We have been in meetings the whole day planning for it. We shall give you all the details tomorrow,” stated Oguna.
Moi passed away on the morning of Tuesday, February 4, at The Nairobi Hospital.
