Barely a week after assuming his diplomatic job, Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka has joined the list of leaders who have paid a courtesy call on former President Daniel arap Moi.

Mr Kalonzo visited Moi at his Kabarak home in Nakuru County where he was welcomed by Baringo Senator Gideon Moi.

Kalonzo was in the company of his son Kennedy who is an MP in the East Africa Legislative Assembly, Kitui Senator Enock Wambua and Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo jnr.

Tiaty Member of Parliament William Kamket and his Moiben counterpart Silas Tiren were also present.

The two leaders discussed issues around national unity and honesty in leadership.

A statement from the office of former President Daniel arap Moi said Moi implored the leaders to forge friendship rather than disintegration because the future of the country was in their hands.

"Some of you will be presidents and ministers in charge of the country. You need to take time and know the whole country and develop friendship," Moi said.

Kalonzo thanked Mzee Moi for standing with him and his family when he lost his father. On November 9 during the burial of his dad, he promised to honour an invite to visit Moi.

Other leaders who have visited Moi in the past include President Uhuru Kenyatta, NASA leader Raila Odinga, Central Organisation of Trade Unions (COTU) boss Francis Atwoli and Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho.
