Moi's Family Statement

The Moi family had earlier released a statement thanking all well wishers who have been to their homes to condole with them.

Mzee Moi has, however, restricted the number of visitors he has received during the season.

"The family with heavy hearts wishes to inform all our friends that our patriarch Mzee Moi may not be able to personally receive those wishing to offer their condolence.

"This inevitable stand does not in any way lessen our gratitude dear friends. Please understand and bear with with us," the statement read in part.

The family did not reveal what caused Jonathan's death but some reports indicate that he had been ailing.
