On Tuesday, thousands of Kenyans converged at Nyayo National Stadium for the National Prayer Service of the late retired President Daniel Arap Moi.

Gates were open as early as 5am, with Kenyans from all walks of life making their way into the stadium to witness the memorial service, ahead of Moi’s State Funeral slated on Wednesday in Kabarak.

Mzee Moi’s body left Lee Funeral home at around 8:30am for State House where it was received by President Uhuru Kenyatta for the Final Salute before being taken to Nyayo National Stadium.

President Kenyatta will be leading the memorial service at Nyayo, an event that is expected to be graced by several Head of States.
