Daniel arap Moi dead”

There was no immediate information on the cause of Moi's death but he had been in and out of hospital with breathing problems in recent months.

Moi was appointed the country's second vice president in 1967 after Kenyatta orchestrated the ouster of Jaramogi Oginga Odinga.

The news was announced Tuesday by the current president, Uhuru Kenyatta, on the East African country's state broadcaster, Citizen Television.

Kenya's second president Daniel arap Moi has died, President Uhuru Kenyatta announced in a presidential proclamation.

"His Legacy endures in Kenya even to this day, encapsulated in the Nyayo Philosophy of "Peace, Love and Unity" that was his mantra throughout his tenure as our Head of State and Government". Remember that he was admitted in hospital in October 2019 and he has never left the hospital since then.

"I have been with him from Tuesday August 22nd, 1978".

He was born on September 2, 1924, in Kabarak village, Sacho division, Baringo County.

He also earned the sobriquet "Professor of Politics" due to his long rule of 24 years, the longest in Kenyan history to date.

He was of the Tugen sub-group of the Kalenjin people. He worked as a teacher from 1946 until 1955.

In 1955 Moi entered politics when he was elected Member of the Legislative Council for Rift Valley.
