Kenya’s former President Daniel arap Moi who was Monday taken to The Nairobi Hospital has died.

Mr. Moi had already visited the hospital under the past two weeks for a routine medical examination.


Mr. Moi’s long-serving Press Secretary, Lee Njiru, confirmed the reports to President Uhuru Kenyatta in a letter who is expected to address the nation when he returns to the country. The Press Secretary added that Moi left behind a letter that months ago that he asked to be read to Kenyans only when he dies. His lawyer has since handed the letter over to the President.

Moi passed on aged 95.
