Moi's Government (1978-2002)



Unwieldy. Corrupt. Repressive.




Moi inherited government that had become all powerful under a ruling elite backed by a repressive Constitutional order. Further amendments to the Constitution made Moi all powerful even above that same constitution.


Moi system of government was a continuation from where Kenyatta had left off and was notable in the blurring the line between the three arms of government. Meanwhile, the Provincial Administration became even more powerful becoming the very personification of repression.


The government under Moi was a mirror of the partisan nature of the politics of the day and became bloated as a result. Moi's Cabinet, like Kenyatta's had few women members.
