Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga on Sunday paid former President Daniel Moi a visit at his Kabarak home to condole with him following his son Jonathan’s death.
The late Jonathan, who succumbed to pancreatic cancer, was laid to rest at his Kabimoi home on Saturday, April 27, in a ceremony graced by several leaders in the country.
Odinga confirmed his visit on his official Twitter handle.
“We continue to wish strength to the former President and his family. May God grant them peace during this trying time,” Raila said in a tweet.
He was in the company of his brother Oburu Odinga and other officials.

The family was received by Baringo Senator Gideon Moi.
Prior to Jonathan’s burial, several leaders led by President Uhuru Kenyatta paid Moi a visit to condole with him. Odinga was conspicuously absent.
Other leaders who joined the family include Deputy President William Ruto, Amani National Congress Leader Musalia Mudavadi, Wiper Party Leader Kalonzo Musyoka, Senate Speaker Kenneth Lusaka, Senate Minority leader James Orengo among other government officials.
The same leaders attended Jonathan’s burial.
However, President Kenyatta and the opposition chief skipped the ceremony as they were in China for official duties.
