The late president Daniel arap Moi’s requiem mass that was held at the Nyayo National Stadium on Tuesday, February 11, was a colourful event, to put it mildly.

Members of his family gave a glowing tribute to the fallen leader, however, hawk-eyed Kenyans couldn’t help but notice the classy black car that was used to ferry the body of the president to and from the stadium.

A quick search online revealed that the car was in fact a Wilcox Limousine Jaguar XJ custom-built hearse.

Wilcox Limousines have been working with Jaguar since 1992 and are the official Jaguar-authorised coachbuilder.

Launched in 2016, the stunning Jaguar XJ took the international funeral market by storm, with its targeted high-end clientele preferring it as a prestigious alternative to the regular hearses.

The car’s intuitive technology and exhilarating performance make the Jaguar XJ-based hearse the very best in the world.

One needs at least Ksh9.8 million to purchase this top of the range vehicle that has been mostly linked to the royals.

Each limousine is hand-built and crafted to individual requirements, with royal families known to have adopted it as the formal vehicle for their funerals.

This particular model was also used during the funerals of the Queen Mother, Princess Diana, Princess Margaret, and Baroness Thatcher

The late president is set to be laid to rest at his Kabaraka home on February 12, an event that is set to feature hundreds of dignitaries from across the world.

The County Government of Nakuru declared an extra holiday on Wednesday, February 12, to celebrate the life of the late president Daniel arap Moi.
