Government shares Mwai Kibaki burial program
The government has released the burial program for retired President Mwai Kibaki.
Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Mataing’i, who chairs the National State Funeral Organisation Committee, said at a press briefing that the fallen Head of State will be buried on Saturday, April 30, at his home in Othaya, Nyeri County.
He will be accorded a State funeral presided over by President Uhuru Kenyatta who broke the news of the death of the retired President on the morning of Friday, April 22.
“The body will also lie in state for three days at the National Assembly, beginning Monday, where dignitaries and members of the public can go and view the body,” said Matiang’i.
Any top government officials and other dignitaries interested in meeting the family have been asked to book appointments on Tuesday and Wednesday next week at his offices located in Nyari Estate.
Condolence books will also be sent to various parts of the country with the aim of ensuring that every Kenyan who wants to reach out to the family can easily do so.
