The first year anniversary of the death of late president Daniel Toroitich Arap Moi was celebrated with pomp and ceremony at his home in Kabarak, Nakuru County on Thursday 4th February.

Several dignitaries joined family, friends and relatives in marking the auspicious occasion. Among them were two former vice-presidents who worked with Moi, Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka and Wycliffe Musalia Mudavadi.

As is to be expected political dialogue overshadowed everything else as speakers obliquely drummed support for the Building Bridges Initiative.

In his memorial speech President Uhuru Kenyatta recalled the late Moi as a kind person who excelled in anything he put his mind on accomplishing. He also called for sober discourse in the political arena regretting that the new generation of politician appears to thrive on insults.

"Moi served my father for a long time as a vice-president with respect and decorum until his turn came to be the president."

Apparently the president was making reference to the strained relationship between him and his DP.

During luncheon Uhuru Kenyatta shared a table with ANC leader Wycliffe Musalia Mudavadi, Baringo Senator Gideon Kipsiele Moi, Rongai MP Raymond Moi and retired army Major Phillip Moi.

Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka who was present at the function somehow did not make it to the high-table. Curious Kenyans on internet have begun raising concerns that the reason behind this could be that Kalonzo, inspite of all pretentions is still a commoner (read Hustler). The class narrative is so prevalent to the society today that even among the privileged there are distinctions.

It certainly brings to memory George Orwell's, Animal Farm where some animals are "more equal" than others.
