President Moi's relatives arrive at Kabarak University.

The burial ceremony of former President Daniel Toroitich arap Moi is underway at his Kabarak, Nakuru County.

Mourners from various corners of the country streamed in at Mzee Moi’s Kabarak residence at dawn. They were given a loaf of bread, a newspaper, water and soda as they settled to wait for the funeral service to begin.

The body left Wilson Airport at around 7:45am in a military chopper M-71. It was flown to Kabarak Airstrip where it arrived at around 8:35am.
