As Kenyans continued to troop in large numbers inside Parliament to view Retired President Daniel Toroitich arap Moi’s body, one man mesmerized other Kenyans by turning up with a live Jogoo.
Ronald Wanyonyi traveled overnight from Trans Nzoia County to say goodbye to Moi with his Jogoo in hand.
Draped in a Kenyan flag branded headscarf Wanyonyi told Ghetto radio News that the jogoo was a symbol of remembrance of how Moi carried him when he was three years when he had visited Trans Nzoi County.
“Moi carried me when he came to Trans Nzoia when i was three years and so because i cannot carry him, i have opted to carry this Jogoo as a sign of respect and remembrance of the good deed he did for me,” said Wanyonyi.
Wanyonyi says he is an ardent Kanu supporter rode to Nairobi overnight in a lift.
Other Kenyans who were on the queue also woke up as early as 5 am to pay their last tribute to Mzee Moi, today being the last day for the public to view the body.
