Monday, October 3, 2016 - Former President Daniel Arap Moi’s used several tactics to rule Kenya for 24-years from 1978-2002.
Some were overt like sending his critics to prison via the infamous Nyayo Chambers while others were covert like this song indicates.
The Nyayo era regime knew the power of music and composed songs that painted Moi as a patriot and the best gift to Kenya while depicting his critics to be non-patriotic and enemies of development.
Ones of those songs that was ubiquitous in national holidays, is this song dubbed ‘Tawala Kenya Rais Moi’ which can be translated to ‘Lead Kenya President Moi’
