Kenya Mourns Multiparty Hero Kenneth Matiba

Kenneth Matiba who was instrumental in the successful fight to introduce multiparty politics in Kenya in the 1990s at the height of the Kanu dictatorship, has died. He became one of three permanent secretaries before independence at only 28, was the first black CEO of East African Breweries Ltd and was the first minister to break the taboo and resign on principle during the Daniel arap Moi presidency.
