The government has announced Tuesday, February 11 a public holiday for citizens to attend former President Daniel Toroitich Arap Moi's funeral service at Nyayo Stadium, Head of Public Service Joseph Kinyua said Thursday.

President Uhuru Kenyatta will lead the nation in a memorial service for the former Head of State.

The national memorial service, Mr Kinyua said, will be an inter-denominational service led by the Africa Inland Church (AIC).

Before then, Kenyans of all walks of life will have three days from Saturday to Monday to view the body, which will be lying in state at Parliament Buildings.

The body will leave the Lee Funeral Home at 8 am with the casket draped in the national flag.

The funeral procession will snake through Valley Road to Kenyatta Avenue and on to Parliament Road after which a military parade will be mounted in his honour.

"Members of the public will view the body at Parliament Buildings and we have made arrangements with the security teams to allow as many people as possible while making sure that we avoid any commotion," Mr Kinyua told journalists on the steps of Harambee House.
