In a statement, President Uhuru Kenyatta said that Daniel Arap Moi, a former president of Kenya, died at his family home early Tuesday in Kenya’s west. He added that he ordered a period of national mourning until a state funeral is held.

President Uhuru Kenyatta revived “Moi Day” in honor of the former Kenyan president Daniel Arap Moi after it was scrapped in 2010.

In 2007, a report from Kroll claimed that Moi’s family and group laundered money on a global scale by way of buying properties and companies in London, New York, and South Africa, as well as a 10,000-hectare ranch in Australia. However, Moi was praised for keeping Kenya “a relative haven of peace” during his reign.
