Museveni mourns fallen President Arap Moi

The late Moi on several occasions asked Museveni to let him visit places in Uganda that he felt attached to.

President Yoweri Museveni has called fallen former Kenyan President, Daniel Toroitich Arap Moi a true East African who was emotionally attached to regional integration. 

Museveni joined thousands of Kenyans and other mourners to celebrate the life of President Daniel Toroitich Arap Moi, at the Nyayo Stadium in Nairobi.

"In Africa, leaders are like doctors. You must properly diagnose what ails your country lest it stays in perpetual trouble. Presidents Moi and Jomo Kenyatta did a good diagnostic job, explaining why Kenya has been stable," said President Museveni. 

President Museveni eulogized the late Moi as a true East African, who did not only work for the political and economic integration of the region but had a real emotional attachment to it. 

The late Moi on several occasions asked Museveni to let him visit places in Uganda that he felt attached to.

"I also remember him as a very conciliatory person. In 1987, when some troublemakers misled him to close the border with Uganda, he was open to talks. We met in Teso, Kenya, resolve the issues and worked closely.

"On my own behalf and that of Ugandans, I, therefore, send my condolences to President Uhuru Kenyatta, the Moi family, Kenya and the region upon loss of this icon," he said. 

May his soul rest in peace.
