A number of present day political heavyweights among them Uhuru Kenyatta, William Ruto, Kalonzo Musyoka, Kalonzo Musyoka among others credit their political success to the fallen professor of politics Daniel Arap Moi.
In his 24-year reign, Nyayo nurtured and moulded a number of them politicians. His curtains fell earlier last year and today marks a year since he passed on. To commemorate Mzee, a number of political leaders lead by president Uhuru Kenyatta have thronged his Kabarak home for the anniversary.

William Ruto's absence from the event has sparked questions. Its Daniel who hauled Samoei out of blues and castes him in the artery of KANU politics in the earlier 90's. Practically, Ruto is doing a coastal tour launching a number of development projects and this tied his hands from taking part in the ceremony.

However,it could be more than that. Naturally, William and Moi's last born son are not miscible courtesy of the 'stolen' birthright. The two brothers have been rubbing shoulders wherever they meet and this predictably kept Ruto away. Another possible theory is that of the second in command eloping any possible humiliation from his rivals.
