Nkiangalia DP, anahitaji maombi - Gideon Moi's teases William Ruto

Baringo Senator Gideon Moi on Wednesday relieved mourners attending his father's burial with a humorous vote of thanks to all those who stood with the late Daniel arap Moi in his final journey.

While thanking doctors who treated Mzee Moi in his last days, Gideon made reference to his poor Swahili skills after referencing to a doctor as doktari as opposed to the proper word daktari.

He added that his long stay with the ailing Mzee had almost qualified to become a doctor and could prescribe the proper medication to patients.

"Your excellency, the long stay almost made me a daktari and its not doktari. Nkikuangalia hivi naweza sema upewe 5 milligrams ya dawa fulani. Nkiangalia DP naona apewe maombi. I see Rachael with all the love. Speaker na yeye aache hizi vitu," Gideon said as the mourners, including the DP applauded in laughter.

Gideon and Ruto have maintained civility during the burial process despite being political enemies.

However, keen observers noticed the subtle signs of political differences playing out in the solemn ceremony.

Last week, Ruto was blocked from viewing Moi's body at the Lee Funeral home.

On Wednesday, Gideon acknowledged all the country's top leaders by name except for Ruto whom he described simply as Deputy President
