The Standard Group has condoled the family of Retired President Daniel Toroitich arap Moi following the death of his son Jonathan Kipkemoi Toroitich arap Moi.
Below, the full statement:
The Standard Group Board of Directors, Management and Staff join Kenyans in condoling the family of Mzee Daniel Toroitich arap Moi, and the people of Baringo County, following the sad loss of his son, Mr Jonathan Kipkemoi Toroitich arap Moi, this morning.
The Standard Group learnt with profound shock of the passing on of Mr Jonathan, the second-born child and first son of the Second President of the Republic of Kenya, Mzee Daniel Arap Moi.
Jonathan will be remembered for his sporting prowess as a Safari Rally icon, as a large-scale farmer, an astute businessman, and for a short period, a political aspirant seeking the Eldama Ravine parliamentary seat.
His courage behind the wheel and his amiable and charming personality endeared him to many, especially the youth, who were his fan base.
May Almighty God grant the family the strength and fortitude to bear the loss. May his soul rest in eternal peace. ?
