Uhuru given special role at Matiba's funeral

"I have lost a father..."

President Kenyatta temporarily stepped out of his VIP confines to be a pallbearer to the man he described as a "father, a friend, and a mentor".

The late Matiba was a close family friend to the Kenyatta and Michuki families. Indeed, Michuki's will had named Matiba and his wife Josephine as administrators of his vast estate.

President Uhuru has also acted as a pallbearer at the funeral services of the late Njoroge Mungai as well as that of Mbugua Mwangi - his nephew who was killed at the Westgate terror attack in 2013.

Uhuru's first entry into politics was at a press conference in July 31st where he joined other sons of prominent Kenyans in demanding Matiba's release.

Others at the press conference included Alfred Getonga, Argwings Ceaser Kodhek, Peter Mboya, and Francis Michuki.
