Country Profile

Founding president and liberation struggle icon Jomo Kenyatta led Kenya from independence in 1963 until his death in 1978, when President Daniel Toroitich arap MOI took power in a constitutional succession. The country was a de facto one-party state from 1969 until 1982 when the ruling Kenya African National Union (KANU) made itself the sole legal party in Kenya.  President MOI stepped down in December 2002 following fair and peaceful elections. Mwai KIBAKI  assumed the presidency following a campaign centered on an anti-corruption platform. UN-sponsored talks in late February produced a power sharing accord.
