The Moi Legacy

Much has been written about Daniel Arap Moi, and his death has uncorked a litany of previously hidden details and insights into the Shakespearian drama he presided over while in office. The questions that arise then is how do we evaluate the legacy of Moi’s agency during his time in office? How do we speak of all his contradictions? His misrule and what lessons does he live for the Kenyan people? Importantly, what does it say about his political orphans, the current crop of leadership and what does his death signify for the Kenyan project. This series brings together a combination of voices and views, addressing the multiplicity of view points around the complex figure that was Daniel Arap Moi.
