The many faces of Moi: professor of politics

Piece by: Grace Kerongo

Kenya's second president Daniel Toroitich Arap Moi was known to many as the professor of politics.

He governed with class and finesse that his opponents always had to bring their A-Game.

Never one to fear the inevitability of death, Mzee Moi told his last born child, Hon. Senator Gideon Moi (Baringo County) who was at his hospital bedside at the height of his frailty and pain...

“To accept life is to accept death. You can’t have one and not the other.”

It was yet another signal to his beloved family that

although his time was running out, he was at peace with himself and God.

Here are photos of Mzee Moi's transformation from his youth to the iconic leader he became.
