State allows Moi’s staffs to mourn for more time before redeployment

Government Spokesman Colonel (Rtd) Cyrus Oguna has issued the late President Daniel Arap Moi workers with more time to mourn him.

Oguna said they should continue resting and mourn for more time before they are redeployed.

Oguna said it is still early to think about redeployment of Moi’s staff even though the government has some plans for them.

Additionally, Oguna said, “We just buried Mzee last week, and since we are Africans, they require to mourn him. Some of his workers were so close to him, and therefore, they might require more time to mourn.”

Besides, Oguna clarified that the government would issue them with circular when mourning time is over.

Furthermore, Oguna said, “We should let them mourn peacefully like any other human being. For now, giving them a break is the least we can do for them.”

However, he confirmed that the government has no hurry in recalling the workers who had attachments to the late President Moi.

According to the Constitution, the former President had two personal assistants, four secretaries, four messengers, four drivers, housekeepers, home cleaners, and bodyguards. Also, the President was entitled to 24 hours of security in all his homes.

According to the sources, Moi had 22 police officers, who will now be redeployed by Inspector General Hillary Mutyembai.

One of the senior officers said, “Most of Moi’s guards will go back to Presidential Escort Unit.”

Some of the President’s staff have worked for him for more than 20 years. Lee Njiru Moi’s Press Secretary has served him for more than 40 years. However, his working contract was extended last year to 2021 after expiry.

Colonel Alexander Kiprop was Moi’s aide de camp since 2002.

The Treasury will close Sh 100 million, which was the annual budget allocation for the late President Moi. The closure will occur after implementation of redeployment later in the year.

Moi retired in 2002 after being Kenya’s President for 24 years. He died on February 4, 2020, after spending three months in Nairobi Hospital. He was undergoing treatment for old age complications.

Moi was admitted to the hospital on October 10, 2019, which is a national holiday that was marked with pomp and exciting events during his reign.
