Kenyans wish Mzee Moi happy birthday as he turns 91
Former President Daniel Toroitich arap Moi turned 91 on Wednesday.
President Uhuru Kenyatta was among leadrs who wished him a happy birthday.
“I wish the President a happy birthday and continued good health,” said President Kenyatta.
Moi’s son Gideon also sent his father birthday wishes. “Happy birthday to a man of substance,” he said.
President Moi was born in 1924 in Sacho. He was President Jomo Kenyatta’s vice president for three years before rising to the top seat and ruling for 24 years.
His regime was widely criticised for economic plunder and torture and assassination of opposition politicians. He succumbed to pressure to shift the country from a single party state to multi-party democracy.
He left office in 2002.
