Nandi County Employees get Wednesday Off
Nandi Governor Stephen Sang has declared Wednesday a ‘day of rest’ to allow the County staff to attend the burial of President Daniel Arap Moi. Sang was signing Moi’s condolence book in Kapsabet when he made the announcement.
Stephen Sang said that the staff from Nandi County would have a break from their normal duties on the day of the burial. Already, Joseph Kinyua, the Head of Public Service had declared Tuesday, the day of Moi’s memorial service at Nyayo Stadium, a public holiday so that people could mourn the late president.
Thousands of Kenyans have visited Parliament buildings on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday to view the body of the former president as he lay in state.
President Uhuru Kenyatta visited Nyayo Stadium on Sunday evening to oversee arrangements for the funeral service.
A large crowd is expected to attend the burial of Moi at Kabarak in Nakuru County. The Regional Commissioner for Rift Valley George Natembeya has announced that the first 30,000 people to arrive at Moi’s burial in Kabarak would be served with bread and soda.
10 heads of state are expected to attend the historic event.
