The late former president Daniel Moi’s remains will be ferried to Parliament and Nyayo Stadium by a gun carriage, a tradition that is widely used in State funerals.

Head of Public Service Joseph Kinyua, while announcing the official program of Mr. Moi’s funeral arrangements, said Mr. Moi – who died on Tuesday – will be accorded full military honours.

“The former head of state will be accorded full military ceremonial honours which shall include conveyance of the body of the former head of state under escort in a gun carriage accompanied by military musical honours and a 19-gun salute,” said Mr. Kinyua, adding that Moi will then be buried in his Kabarak home on Wednesday, February 12.
