ICT Cabinet Secretary Joe Mucheru was on Tuesday caught up in a scuffle with security at the Nyayo National Stadium during the funeral Service of the late Retired President Daniel Toroitich Arap Moi.
Mucheru who was with Rwanda President Paul Kagame was apparently barred by security from accessing the stadium through the entry point that Kagame had used.
The security officers then blocked him alongside a section of Kagame’s security officers.
Mucheru had received Kagame then took him to Deputy President William Ruto who also received him at the Nyayo National Stadium.
Among African leaders who have attended Moi’s funeral are Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni, Tanzania’s John Magufuli, Rwanda’s Paul Kagame, South Sudan’s Salva Kiir, Ethiopia’s Sahle Work-Zewde and the DRC’s Felix Tshisekedi.
Other dignitaries are Djibouti’s President Ismail Omar Guelleh, Nigeria’s Deputy President Yemi Osinbajo, Namibia Deputy President Nickey Iyambo, former Tanzanian Presidents Jakaya Kikwete and Benjamin Mkapa, and Burundi foreign affairs minister Alain Aimé Nyamitwe.
