I just wish they could honor someone who helped the economy – Kibaki grandson’s throws shade over Moi Day

Sean appeared to suggest that Moi Day was not necessary and would be better celebrated in honour of a different person who “delivered to the Kenyan people and economy”.

“Apparently is back. CS Mr. Matiang'i & H.E Mr. Kenyatta, I wish you could, just maybe, honor a different person who delivered more to the Kenyan people and economy, and would never ask for any such "tributes" in return. Anyway I don't want to play these politics...,” the younger Kibaki said through his Twitter handle.

The reference to the economy created the impression that Sean was referring to his grandfather – Kenya’s third President credited with expanding democratic space and turning around the economic fortunes of the country.

Interestingly, President Kibaki was instrumental in scrapping Moi Day which was celebrated as a National Holiday – complete with official celebrations during President Moi’s reign.

When he assumed the Presidency in 2003, Kibaki’s regime did not recognize Moi Day as a national holiday even though was observed as a public holiday without any official ceremonies.

In 2010, the new constitution was passed, with Moi Day having been scrapped from the list of national holidays.
