No journalists, no cameras these were strict directives by former president Emilio Mwai Kibaki before he could view former president Moi’s body.
According to reports, the former president asked that no live broadcast were to take place while he was viewing the body for personal reasons and respect he accorded former president Moi.
Kibaki and his convoy made their way to the parliament buildings at 11:35 in the morning.
His family made it clear that no media and television broadcasts were to take place while the former president was viewing the body.
After viewing the Body, Kibaki and former president Moi’s children led by Gideon Moi had a lengthy talk.
The request by Kibaki’s family not to have pictures of him taken while viewing the body were futile as they were shared online as soon as he started his viewing.
Kenyans will be able to view Moi’s body on Tuesday. State house has also noted that on the same day Kenyans have been granted a public holiday to be part of Moi’s final send off.
Flags will also be raised half-mast to show last respects to the farmer president.
