This comes even as his son, Baringo Senator Gideon Moi, implored Kenyans to reflect on the African values that distinguished them from other countries during the Moi Day celebrations
"As we observe this year's Moi Day, I want to implore on all Kenyans to reflect on the African values that distinguish us, and bestow upon us our common identity and collective aspirations as a people. Thus, may peace, love and unity continue to reign supreme in our land," he posted on his Facebook page.
