The late president Daniel Arap Moi deviated from the media glare and retreated to enjoy his retirement in his palatial residences perched in Nairobi and Kabarak. In here, the former President would host visitors ranging from senior government officials to budding politicians.

Moi lived a life dotted with opulence and he was tellingly considered one of the most protected Kenyans. It's only after his death that the media would bound into his residence and take photos of his mansion which was awash with opulence.

Several leaders trickling in to issue their condolences meant that Kenyans could at least be treated to photos of this spectacular setting.

In harmony with reports, Moi moved into the fabulous house upon becoming the vice president in 1967. The residence was to offer shelter for Vice President, however, the late president didn't vacate the property even after ascending to the presidency.

Former vice presidents Oginga Odinga and Joseph Murumbi, also resided in the Multimillion mansion.

Upon ascending to power in 2002, Kibaki instructed the government to build a new residence for Vice President in Karen which is being occupied by Deputy President William Ruto. 

Situated near Kibera and perched along Ngong Road, the spectacular garden is marked with security checkpoints at the entrance with security personnel beefing up a barricade.

The palatial home which oozes with opulence is a one storey building bordered by a green lawn, flower beds, palm and sisal trees. A scattering of decent and rejuvenating trees communicates Moi's love for the vegetation.

Contrary to other ornate residences, Moi palatial home has its pathways ornamented with cabro.
