Retired President the late Daniel Toroitich Arap Moi and his wife Lena Moi who died in 2004
Former President Daniel Moi's wife Lena Moi, really suffered before she died in July 2004. According to reports, the former teacher was allegedly treated badly after she finalized her divorce with Moi in1979.
Born in 1926, Lena Moi attended AIM School in Eldama Ravine before she joined Tenwek Girls Boarding School in Kericho.
After the annulment of their marriage, Lena left the Vice President's official residence at Kabarnet Gardens in Nairobi and settled at Kabimoi home in Eldama Ravine where she led a quite life.
For most of her life Lena was only known at her Kabimoi village where she lived a rural-woman's life with no means of transport. For instance, during the burial of Ibrahim Chege, the husband to her daughter Doris, Lena took a Matatu from Eldama Ravine to Nandi Hills to attend the burial ceremony.
"She had no problem using a matatu" a family friend told Sunday Nation. By the time of her death Lena's bedroom had been shifted to the sitting room because the roof was leaking.
