In Summary
  • The governor noted that Moi found a way to make all communities part of his government, so leaders should shun tribal alignments in his honour.
  • The City Hall boss further said the death of the second President should motivate Kenyans to rally behind the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI).

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has challenged political leaders to embrace national unity and inclusivity in remembrance of the late retired President Daniel arap Moi.

The governor said that Moi found a way to make all communities part of his government, so leaders should shun tribal alignments in his honour.

Sonko, who spent most of his early life at the Coast, reminisced about Moi's value for the region, saying he demonstrated it through appointments.

"He was a frequent visitor to the Coast. He made many friends in the region and every other part of this country," he said.

“Moi set a precedent on matters of national unity and appointments which reflected the true face of Kenya. He always spoke about unity in every corner of the country," he said."
