Abstract:

"Daniel arap Moi, the President of Kenya, is one of Africa's longest-serving and most controversial leaders. He has ruled the East African nation since the death of Jomo Kenyatta, the first President, in 1978 and has survived a coup attempt, tribal unrest and economic upheaval." "During his long life Moi has seen the turbulent days of British rule, the coming of the first missionaries and the Mau Mau uprising which preceded Independence. In many respects, Moi has acted as a midwife to the nation, guiding the unruly infant during her first decades since Independence." "Over the past three years, Andrew Morton has pieced together a portrait of Moi's extraordinary life. He has been granted unique access to interview Moi's family, his friends, his colleagues - and his enemies."--Jacket.
