The over 30,000 mourners who arrived at the Kabarak home in Nakuru County on Wednesday for the burial of second President Daniel Arap Moi were fed.
The mourners who some had traveled overnight from various parts of the country were ushered in with Bread and sodas as promised and later received packed lunch after burial.
They had traveled from the Coast, Central, Western, and Nairobi among other areas across the country.
On Tuesday during the interdenominational prayers at Nyayo national stadium, the mourners complained of being left without food despite coming from far.
“Bread and soda is not enough for us, remember we are mourning our second President and we need something better,” lamented the mourners.
Their cry never fell on deaf ears and the state ensured that the mourners were fed with bread and soda each and rice meal after burial to wipe off the tears.
