Kenya: Massive election defeat for Arap Moi

15/01/2003, The December 27th General election in Kenya resulted in a massive defeat of the Kenya African National Union (KANU) and the rise to power of the National Rainbow Coalition (NARC) which brought together sixteen opposition parties. The defeat of KANU was historic because it brought to an end 39 years of KANU’s iron grip on power while it also marked the end of 24 years of dictatorship by the 78 year-old Daniel Toroitich arap Moi.

Kenya: 240,000 teachers on strike

07/10/2002, In Kenya 240,000 teachers have entered into their second week of a national strike action to demand an outstanding salary increment which they won in 1997 after the teachers paralysed the education system by going on a nationwide strike. Henry Kosgey, the Minister of Education, has responded by legally revoking the teacher’s pay rise package, thereby rolling back the gains the teachers won after doing battle with the corrupt KANU state in 1997.
