Kenya’s Former Iron-fisted Leader Daniel arap Moi Dies Aged 95

NAIROBI (Somaliguardian) – Kenya’s former President Daniel arap Moi has died at the age of 95 following illness, Kenyan president Uhuru Kenyatta officially announced a national morning.

Moi had ruled KENYA from 1978 until 2002; his critics accuse him of iron-fisted rule while his allies credited him for a stability the East African country enjoyed during his tenure in office.

In office, he was feared and loved in equal measure; however, his reign was shadowed by economic instability that tarnished him over the decades.

Daniel arap Moi came to power following the death of Jomo Kenyatta and unlike of his predecessor, his governance was characterized by widespread corruption and allegations of not leveraging his influence in curbing the misdemeanor which became deeply rooted in Kenya’s public sector.
