Ex-Kenyan President Arap Moi dies

Former Kenyan president Daniel Arap Moi, who ruled the country between 1978 and 2002, has died, President Uhuru Kenyatta has announced. Moi was 95.
Moi’s 24-year rule saw his country become a one-party state where critical voices were crushed, corruption became endemic and tribal divisions were stoked and turned bloody.
“It is with profound sadness that I announce the death of a great man of an African state,” Kenyatta said in a statement.
He ordered a period of national mourning until a state funeral is held, on a date not yet announced.
