Kenyans have been warned against wearing political party branded attires during the burial of the late former President Daniel arap Moi in Kabarak, Nakuru County on Wednesday.
“This is not a political function, don’t come here with BBI t-shirts or any other,” Natembea said.
According to Rift Valley Regional Commissioner George Natembeya, if anyone feels they must wear political party clothing, then it must be branded KANU — Kenya’s oldest political party and which the late president Moi was affiliated to.
Natembeya said preparations for the ceremony are complete and they are expecting a minimum of 30,000 people to attend the burila.
Natembea however said only 500 people, mostly family members, will be allowed at the burial site.
The Regional Commissioner asked members of public planning to attend the funeral to be seated at the venue by 7 am, as the ceremony is expected to begin by 9am.
On Monday, Natembeya said each of the first 30,000 mourners will be handed a soda, bread, water and a programme of the event on arrival at the burial venue.
The Regional Commissioner disclosed that 30,000 seats have been hired and set up under a mega tent for members of public expected at the event. He, however, noted that there will be enough space to host even more people should the number exceed 30,000.
For transport logistics, Natembeya said all school buses in Nakuru County will be availed to ferry people from around the area to Kabarak, adding that the County Government will also chip in to provide more vehicles.
The vehicles are set to begin picking members of public from as early as 4.30am on Wednesday.
