HISTORICAL NOTES

Daniel Toroitich arap Moi (born 2 September 1924) is a former Kenyan politician who served as the second President of Kenya from 1978 to 2002. Through popular agitation and external pressures, he was forced to allow multiparty elections in 1992; he led his party, KANU, to victory in the 1992 and 1997 elections. Prior to becoming President, he served as the third Vice President of Kenya from 1967 to 1978.

Moi is popularly known to Kenyans as "Nyayo", a Swahili word for "footsteps", as he often said he was following in the footsteps of the first President, Jomo Kenyatta. He also earned the sobriquet "Professor of Politics" due to his long rule of 24 years, the longest in Kenyan history to date.
