Mzee was an exemplary patient following my advice for the record as Gideon said yes mzee loved his meat, he also enjoyed sharing kosha wine from Israel, and maybe a wee bit at bedtime, dawa ya mzee he called it

Passaris explained her story during the viewing of the body of the late president, saying that Mzee Moi had once called to comfort her when she lost her pregnancy.

“I lost my pregnancy around that time (1997) and he called me personally and said sorry,” she revealed. That wasn’t all as the politician added that the former head of state gave her the first phone in 1997 when she met him over a tender to supply campaign t-shirts.

“I got the first phone from him, I was running a promotion company and I got the tender to supply he could called me often because they was pressure to get t-shirts,”

Because she didn’t have a mobile phone for constant communication with the late president, Mzee Moi ordered a senior State House officer to give her the important gadget.

Wait, there’s more. The former Baringo leader also intervened when Passaris had an issue being paid after she had done a job for his KANU party.

“They held half of my money, that was about four, five million shillings and he got to hear about it. He called me and ordered the money to be paid to me immediately,” she recalled.

Mwalimu described how a teacher messed the experience for the entire school. The teachers name? Morphat. Read the interesting anecdote

Another day alikuja and all morning we had been instructed to cheer until he arrives with his motorcade. Those days his motorcade was so big, and we lost our voices screaming his praises. By the time he arrived our teacher Morphat would scream at us to continue chanting his praises or face a beating. Tulikuwa tunatingisha bendera, tulipewa the day before almost 10,000 kids waiting in line for the president with  guy ordering us to tingiza bendera. When he came I will never forget.

His convoy stopped then he asked a representative of the school to come forward and tell him our problems. We picked teacher mophart. Mophart told him we didn’t need anything, that tuko nyuma yako, how do you say we don’t need anything yet we don’t have water, roads, arrh teacher morphat I shall never forget him.

What all Kenyans also remember about Moi is that he started the tradition of building gabions.
