Kibaki's children and grandchildren were also present at the National Assembly, where his eldest son, Jimmy Kibaki paid his tribute.

"We are encouraged to see the large turn out by Kenyans. To me he was just my father but seeing all these people means he uplifted the life of Kenyans and they have come here to show their appreciation. It's not easy at all, he has been in my life all my life. It has not hit me that he is gone, it will only hit me once we bury him in Othaya," Jimmy said. 

The body of Mwai Kibaki arrived at the parliament buildings on Monday morning. President Uhuru Kenyatta then arrived at Parliament where a brief requiem mass was held before he could open the stage to the public viewing of the body.

President Uhuru Kenyatta, who was accompanied by his wife Margaret then took a photo with the family members beside President Kibaki's body. 

High-ranking generals from the Army then viewed Kibaki's body, followed by Deputy President William Ruto, Senate, and Parliament speakers, Chief Justice Martha Koome and her deputy Philomena Mwilu, Cabinet Secretaries, legislators, and members of the public.
