Burial date for Jonathan Moi set

Private ceremony

Jonathan Toroitich Moi who died in Nakuru on April 19, 2019

Jonathan Moi will be buried on Saturday April 27, 2019 at his Kabimoi home in Eldama Ravine, Baringo County.

According to communication from the family, preparations are ongoing at the site and security has already been reinforced at the venue.

The family has also conveyed that the ceremony will only involve a few selected individuals and they asked for privacy as they prepare to send him off.

Jonathan was the first born son of former President Daniel Toroitich arap Moi and is remembered as an active sportsman.

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.
