Thank you but sorry, Moi won’t receive mourners following son Jonathan’s death.
That is the message that Moi’s family released on Sunday while thanking ‘Kenyans and friends across the globe’ for the condolences following the death of Jonathan Toroitich.
Through Moi’s Press Secretary and Personal Assistant Lee Njiru, the family, said in a statement that the retired president may not be able to personally receive those wishing to offer their condolences.
“The family with heavy hearts wishes to inform all our friends that our patriarch Mzee Moi may not be able to personally receive those wishing to offer their condolence. This inevitable stand does not in any way lessen our gratitude dear friends. Please understand and bear with with us,” the statement reads.
“We are distraught as family and we ask for your prayers and seek your understanding and indulgence to allow us mourn privately. We will continue to inform Kenyans on need basis and further arrangements,” it adds.
The family has, however, said that they appreciate the messages which started streaming in on Saturday morning after the news of Jonathan’s demise broke.
The family has through Njiru added that the burial arrangements will be communicated soon.
