They normally say the history repeats itself, and it would not be a surprise to see it repeating itself in the near future. Mzee Daniel Toroitich arap Moi will be remembered as the longest serving President of Kenya since independence following his 24 years reign at the helm of power. Moi took over as the President of Kenya in 1978 after the death of the first President Mzee Jomo Kenyatta.
Moi called himself the Professor of Politics, and he molded among others current Deputy President William Ruto, President Uhuru Kenyatta, President Mwai Kibaki, Deputy President William Ruto and many others all have roots to the late Moi and his KANU party.
During his prime time as the head of state, Moi said that KANU will rule Kenya for 100 years. This has been evident in the Kenyan politic and despite some parties coming into play KANU still rules-The forest changed but the KANU monkeys are still the same. Looking at the history of KANU, Kenya's third president Mwai Kibaki was initially a KANU member before shifting to NACK. The current president Uhuru Kenyatta was also a KANU guy, and at some point he was the chair of the oldest party in Kenya.
With the current happening in the political scenes in Kenya, there are high chances that the next President of Kenya will still be a KANU orphan. KANU chairman Gideon Moi over the week was crowned the presidential aspirant under the KANU party and should he clinch power in next year's general elections, the 100 years of KANU's reign as predicted by Mzee Moi will continue.
