The organisers of the much-anticipated Nairobi performance of Jamaican reggae maestro Buju Banton postponed the event following the death of retired president Daniel Moi.
The event was scheduled to take place on Saturday at Comesa Grounds, KICC. However, the organisers were forced to postpone the show up to February 15, since the grounds will be used as a holding ground for the public intending to view the body of late president Moi.
The body of Moi shall lie-in-State at Parliament from Saturday to Monday, where the public viewing at will be done between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
The cortege will leave Lee funeral home at 08:05 A.M. on Saturday and will be conveyed to Parliament buildings with the casket being draped in the National Flag and escorted by the family of president Moi.
This brought logistical challenges to the organisers hence the postponement.
“In this regard and in consultations with the government and the venue management, we have postponed the event from February 8 to February 15, 2020, at the same venue- KICC from 6 PM,” said a statement from the management.
The management pledged to honor all the tickets already purchased, sponsors and other partners.
President Moi will be buried on February 12 at his Kabarak home.
