Mwai Kibaki’s Final Journey Begins

Date:

The body of former President Mwai Kibaki will this morning be escorted from Lee Funeral Home to State House where a guard of honor will be mounted one last time in the place he called home for 10 years.

At 9 am, the procession will depart State House for Nyayo National Stadium, where the state funeral will be held in his honor ahead of burial at his Othaya home tomorrow.

The six-hour send-off program for Kenya’s third President will be a largely military affair.

Given that Kibaki was Catholic, the Mass will be celebrated by Archbishop Philip Anyolo, assisted by Archbishop Martin Kivuva.

Foreign leaders, including South Africa’s President Cyril Ramaphosa, are expected to arrive at 10.20 am for the ceremony to pay tribute to Kibaki who died last Friday, aged 90.
