As messages of condolences to the family of late Kenneth Matiba continue to trickle in from across the political divide, Kenyans online are waiting to hear from retired president Daniel Moi.

Mr Matiba died Sunday at the age of 85 years while receiving treatment at the Karen Hospital.

President Uhuru Kenyatta together with Deputy President William Ruto were among the first to send their messages of condolences to the family and friends of the late Mr Matiba.

Kenyans also joined in, eulogizing Mr Matiba as a hero who championed for multipartism during the Kanu regime.

But curious Kenyans are eagerly waiting to read president Moi’s condolence message.

Mr Matiba was a political prisoner during Moi’s brutal Kanu regime and suffered a stroke while at Kamiti Maximum Prison where he was held without trial. He was later released.

This is what Kenyans on Twitter (KOT) had to say.
