In Summary

Unknown to many Kenyans, former President Daniel arap Moi was a great singer who entertained the congregation every Sunday at the African Inland Church Chapel at Kabarak University.

The chapel’s chaplain Reverend Paul Makono Ombati said Mzee Moi’s singing sessions will greatly be missed by the congregation.

ENJOYED SINGING

“The Sunday service was never complete without his [Moi’s] presence as the congregation enjoyed his singing,” said Reverend Ombati.

Reverend Ombati revealed that some of the songs that Mzee Moi loved are Never alone and Because He lives among others.

“He was also very strict when it came to reading the Bible. When I was preaching, he could open his Bible and follow the proceedings,” he recalls Dr Ombati.

SHARP MEMORY

Reverend Ombati, who has been working at the AIC chapel for more than 13 years, said Mzee Moi had very sharp memory.

“He could remember the names of students whenever he addressed them,” Dr Ombati said.

“He set a new record of good leadership and I challenge other leaders to emulate him, more so, in his commitment to work of God,” he added.
