However, emerging reports have indicated that Jonathan was suffering from pancreatic cancer. Reports also say that he had been given three months to live by his doctors. Bizna Kenya, though, is yet to establish the authenticity of these reports.

In a statement, his brother Senator Gideon Moi described him as an amiable, social, down to earth and industrious man. “We are distraught as family and we ask for your prayers and seek your understanding and indulgence to allow us mourn privately,” the Senator said.

Jonathan was once a popular Safari Rally driver. While Jonathan has maintained a low profile, his son, Collins Moi, though, has been in the headlines over controversial circumstances. In 2016, Collins was charged with stealing two mobile phones from two women. Early this year, he was in the news again for abandoning his girlfriend in a hotel in Trans Nzoia County.
