Gideon Moi chuckles mourners with story of how he crashed Mzee Moi's brand new car

Baringo Senator Gideon Moi on Wednesday treated mourners with humorous anecdotes of the private life of Kenya's second President - the late Daniel arap Moi.

Gdeon told mourners that despite the strenuous public duties, Mzee Moi remained a wonderful father to him and his siblings.

He treated mourners with a break of laughter as he told of his own personal stories as Mzee Moi's last born son.

He recalled one incident where his father had bought a new car and in his youthful energy decided to take it on a test drive.

He ended up crashing the vehicle and dreaded breaking the news to his father, but cunningly went to see his father with a bible in his hand.

Surprisingly, Mzee Moi broke into laughter as he had already learnt of Gideon's accident.

" I recall at one time when my father had bought a brand new car. As a young boy, I could not wait to take the car for a speed drive, but it got into an accident and it was no more."

"I decided to carry a bible on my hand as I went to break the news to him. My father took one look at me and shook his head and burst into laughter. He had a great sense of humour and that was Mzee,"Gideon said.
