Daniel Moi, Kenya’s longest-serving President, died on February 4, 2020.
Mzee Moi was both President Kenyatta and DP Ruto’s political mentor even though he had apparently fallen out with Ruto at the time of his demise.
The highlight of their fallout was in 2018 when Ruto was blocked from visiting the retired president who was ailing.
