There were long but orderly queues at the ongoing funeral service at Kabarak University for the late second President, Daniel Arap Moi.
A neighbour to Kabarak University, Julius Rono said people from all over the country started arriving as early as 5 a.m. on Wednesday.
Rono said the entire Kabarak neighbourhood will forever be grateful to the security and the uninterrupted water supply they enjoy due to the generosity of the late president.
He added that for a long time their children used to travel all the way to Nakuru town to attend school, which was not only exhausting but tedious for the pupils.
However, the construction of Kabarak Primary changed all that because the children got enrolled in the school. The school is both day and boarding.
Rono added that the floral arrangement of mainly white and green has contributed to the serenity of the occasion.
A group which travelled from Kisii County said they left at 3.00 am because they wanted to be on time for the service.
“We have travelled from Gusii to bid farewell to the late president, to show our gratitude for the contributions he made towards the construction of many Seventh Day Adventists Churches in our area,’’ said Julius Omae.
