Moi Day and Moi

0

1978-2002, 24 years. Most of the people reading this are barely 24 years or are around that age. You can’t mess with such facts. Daniel Arap Moi, where to start? Probably with the idea that there may never be a longer serving president in Kenya than him. He’s a Virgo in the Zodiac signs. That may be reason why his reign was what it was, he had the natural urge to analyse and critique every single action. Let’s be honest, after Mzee Jomo Kenyatta, Moi was the best president Kenya has had.
Remember Nyayo house? Yeah, sure you don’t and it’s not something one would want to remember. But then you may have heard how strong our economy was in his era. Or maybe you are one of the few Kenyans who have heard about Nyati house. On the other hand, you might be the Kenyan that knew of the great education system in his reign. The new Kenyan historians theorize that Moi was not always harsh in nature, up until that assassination attempt. After that, who wouldn’t want to control as much as reasonably so.
I’m not patriotic, because I believe patriotism is blind faith (as some countries have blatantly shown), but such Presidents are the ones who inspire patriotism. I wouldn’t be surprised to see his son, Gideon Moi, in office in 2022. And I hope he lives healthily on to see his son in office just like Mzee Jomo should have. Moi day recently got reinstated as a public holiday, imagine how boss you have to be to have a public holiday. Then your haters fight your holiday, then your holiday is back once again. All the while being around 90 years old
I like Virgos, they are too awesome. They will do what they feel they need to do, even though it may seem unethical. This is not a ‘the end justifies the means’ situation. That statements requires malicious intent involved in selfishness. This is more of a ‘no matter what’ situation often found in a Japanese anime. Virgos have planned steps, the next moves and plan B C and D’s ahead in case of anything going wrong. If you are a true Kenyan, you might have heard of our ‘underground tunnels’ in the CBD.
The news is often fond of sharing negative news, no wonder Moi super hero jumped into our media industry. The news may not have shared the positives of the great era, but they were there. What am I trying to say? Have a blessed Moi day and celebrate the great man.
PS. I am not a Virgo.
What are your thoughts on Moi, if you have any, share on our Social Media platforms.
