The late Jonathan Toroitich will be laid to rest at his home in Kabimoi, Eldama Ravine, Baringo County tomorrow.

Kabarak University Vice-Chancellor Henry Kiplagat, who is chairing the burial committee, said preparations to give Jonathan a proper send-off were proceeding without a hitch.

Prof Kiplagat said a requiem Mass for retired President Daniel Moi’s first-born son would be conducted at the Kabarak University graduation square.

“Preparations are in top gear and we have made all the arrangements to give the late JT a befitting send-off,” he said.

The vice-chancellor said they were grateful for the support accorded to the family by citizens and various leaders.

“I thank the many friends who have come to comfort the family, including politicians. We are deeply grateful for identifying with this family; continue praying for them,” he said.

Yesterday, Chief Justice David Maraga visited Moi at his Kabarak home to condole with him.

Others who visited Moi included Nakuru Governor Lee Kinyanjui, Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka, Kenya Film Classification Board CEO Ezekiel Mutua and former Gatanga MP Peter Kenneth.

Kitui Senator Enoch Wambua, Lugari MP Ayub Savula and Central Organisation of Trade Unions Secretary General Francis Atwoli were also present.

Jonathan, a renowned Safari Rally driver, died on Saturday at a Nakuru hospital after battling cancer. His body is lying at the Lee Funeral Home in Nairobi.
