Moi’s Theatre of the Absurd: Reflections on My Generation’s President

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. But 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 does his life leave behind as a lesson for the Kenyan people and what does it say about his political orphans who are now in leadership in the country and what does it mean for the Kenyan state.
