Remembering Moi - Kenya's Autocratic President

Daniel arap Moi - Kenya's president from 1978 to 2002 - is widely held responsible for a regime that bore witness to, and benefited from, violence, corruption and discrimination. Kenya's Truth, Justice and Reconciliation Commission found that between 1978 and 2002, Moi's government was responsible for numerous gross human rights violations. These included massacres, unlawful detentions and torture, writes Gabrielle Lynch for The Conversation.
