Moi died on Tuesday morning at the Nairobi Hospital at 5.20am. His son Senator Gideon Moi was by his side. If the same people like Moi who killed and assassinated the cream de la creme Kenya are celebrated then maybe we should have public participation in the choosing who gets state funerals in Kenya.
Following the demise of Kenya’s second president Daniel arap Moi, President Uhuru Kenyatta has directed that the following be observed. Here are my rough notes on each of the orders which have dictatorship written all over:

1. That in testimony of the respect in which the memory of the Late Daniel Toroitich arap Moi is held, the nation will observe a period of national mourning from today until the day of his funeral. (Mourning should NEVER be an order from the president, it should come naturally based on how people genuinely feel about you.)
2. The former head of state will be accorded a State Funeral, with all appropriate Civilian and Full Military Honours being rendered and observed. (Where do the finances to award thieves who plundered Kenya a state funeral coming from? We are deep in debt and Moi can pay for his funeral with all the colonial spoils passed down to him.)
3. That as an expression of public sorrow the Flag of the Republic of Kenya shall be flown at half-mast at State House, State Lodges, all Public Buildings and Public Grounds, all Military Bases, Posts and Stations, on all Naval Vessels of the Republic of Kenya, and however elsewhere throughout the Republic of Kenya; from dawn on February 4, 2020 Until sunset on the day of the burial. (This should be an optional decision made by the mentioned institutions. Anything else is dictatorship. Half mast flags should be reserved for national disasters and heroes, otherwise they loose their meaning and significance if every thief who held power is awarded the useless gesture that is supposed to be privilege.)
4. That Kenya’s national flag shall be flown at half-mast for the same length of time at all High Commissions, Embassies, Consulates, Diplomatic Offices and other facilities of the Republic of Kenya abroad. (Forcing other countries to partake in our dumbersery is even worse because they don’t have a personal connection to the old man. The only good side is that they will be forced to google and find out who on earth Moi was, which will reveal all the hidden skeletons from his closet.)
