Peter Kenneth visited Matiba on the day, terming the time spent with him a reminder of the effects of Kenya’s troublesome political past.
“Today, I had the honour of spending some time with Hon. and Mrs. Kenneth. S.N. Matiba in Diani, Mombasa. A stark reminder of our dark political past and what it did to one of Kenya’s most illustrious sons,” Kenneth posted on his Facebook page.
Charles Njonjo and William Ole Ntimama were also present.
Due to his political activism, Matiba was held at Kamiti Maximum Security Prison without trial during Moi’s time as president.
He was denied medical attention and suffered a stroke as a result.
He now rests at his Mombasa home in ill health with his wife Edith
