We in Nandi learnt with profound sadness, of the passing on of H.E Daniel Toroitich arap Moi. On behalf of the County Government and People of Nandi I extend sincere condolences to the Moi family and the country at large on the passing on of the Retired President Moi, an Icon of peace, love and unity.
It is said that “one act does not define a leader. It is their lasting legacy they leave behind.” Indeed, Mzee Moi did just that by the way he lived and by the things he taught us through his service to the country in various capacities including as an educator, legislator, and policy maker and finally as head of state. We were blessed as a nation to have had him with his service and dedication. It is something that we will never forget and for which we will always be grateful.
Respected and revered, Mzee Moi has brought out the best in us. This is a mark of a true leader who brought about meaningful and lasting change through education. He is respectfully remembered as a founding father of many schools in the country.
After leaving office as president and eventual retirement from public life he continued to influence leaders and people. This true father of Kenya will forever be remembered as one of the greatest persons of our time and his lasting legacy will continue to inspire and motivate all of us to work for a better tomorrow where human rights are upheld and defended; where there is justice, equity, peace, and freedom for all.
His life’s contribution to us has made our world a better place. We can honour his immeasurable contribution by living his legacy, by promoting national unity, mutual respect and sustainable development through the eradication of negative ethnicity, and violence in our country. His example will forever remain in our hearts and minds.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and all of Kenya at this time as we mourn his passing. May he now reap his eternal rewards for the great work he has done for Kenya.
Governor, Nandi County.
