Lee Njiru said : “He passed away peacefully. I was by his side and as a family, we have accepted," Baringo Senator Gideon Moi said at the Nairobi Hospital on Tuesday. His body was received at the Lee Funeral Home shortly after 8am. President Uhuru Kenyatta who is away in the US issued a presidential proclamation announcing the passing on of Kenya's second President. For the first time on Tuesday, Moi's long-serving press secretary Lee Njiru narrated how the last years have been difficult for Moi family and his close associates. Njiru said Moi's deteriorating health, which he attributed to old age, required him to begin using a walking stick before he was confined to a wheelchair. He disclosed that Moi had been in hospital for a record four months without being discharged. "For the last three years, I have seen a decline in his health. As he was an important person, we don't disclose this. He was hospitalised in October last year and never left the hospital. The hospital was like a nursing home, not a hospital,” External link
