PRESIDENT Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has mourned the death of former Kenyan President Daniel Arap Moi saying It is no doubt that Kenya, East Africa and the entire continent has lost a great leader.
Mzee Moi’s death was announced today morning.
Museveni has said, “I learnt with sadness about the death of Mzee Daniel Toroitich Arap Moi, the former president of Kenya. I first met Mzee Moi in 1979 after the defeat of Amin.”
“Later, when we waged the Liberation Struggle, he was critical and we kept him abreast of our struggle. He actually worked as a mediator in the 1985 Peace Talks.” Museveni’s condolence message reads.
On what Museveni will always remember about Moi, he has said, “Mzee Moi was an active East African. He supported the East African Community and its integration. Him, Mzee Hassan Mwinyi and myself revived what had become the defunct EAC.”
“He was a true Pan-Africanist, who worked closely with the masses. He was also a deeply religious person. My condolences and that of Ugandans to His Excellency Uhuru Kenyatta, the Moi family and all Kenyans on the passing of this icon.” Said President Museveni
