“I will remember him for his Statesmanship patience. He was a listener, gifted and an intellectual man. I was the age of his son, and yet when we sat on the few occasions we had, he listened keenly and gave me tremendous respect that I was surprised. Not just the respect of my office, but the respect of what I was saying,” Muheria said.
“I pray that leaders emulate his kind of statesmanship.”
On Friday, Muheria caught the attention of Kenyans after containing a man who had unlimitedly sought an audience during Kibaki's State funeral service at Nyayo Stadium immediately after President Uhuru Kenyatta's speech.
He de-escalated the situation by calmly moving the man away from the microphone as security agents showed up to contain the situation.
“Everyone should, try and show a state of mercy when called upon,” Muheria told a local TV station
