‘Live life on your terms’ Kenyans say about lessons learnt from Moi death


Classic 105 callers spoke highly of the need to mend fences and live life under your own terms and conditions, following the death of Moi.

Maina Kageni sought to know from listeners some of the lessons they have learnt since learning of the death of the late former President Daniel Moi.

What lesson is going to stay with you after Moi’s death? Maina asked, to which many called in with their life lessons.

His co host Mwalimu Kingangi began by saying ‘Tenda Wema Nenda Zako’, something many agreed with.

A man impressed Maina when he dropped something worth thinking about. He said

let people like you under your own principles, your own terms and conditions, and if you want to go astray because you want to please some people then you will be misled,

Maina, it is good to learn to forgive. No matter what the late Moi did, forgive and ease the burden in your heart.

Another man called in and said “As a kid I used to think he was a bad man but now I think he was a good president and a good man.” #MainaAndKingangi

Maina let people forget what moi did when he was in power, what depends is the relationship with God in his final journey

My lesson is that everything is vanity….just live your life to the fullest and have the best relationship with your God…no man should judge you

The Love Lives of Kenya’s Presidents

Kenya’s president’s have had their fair share of love stories. From the first polygamous president to a rather really private one with his love life. Here is a list of our president’s love stories. Seems like Kenya’s first president had the most interesting love story.

4. Jomo Kenyatta
The late Jomo Kenyatta was the first president of the republic of Kenya. He was a polygamous man and he had four wives. He married his first wife Grace Wahu in 1919, they bore two children Peter Muigai and Margret Kenyatta. He later married Edna Clarke as his second wife and they had one son Peter Magana. She died in England in 1995. After leaving Edna in Britain Jomo Kenyatta married his third wife Grace Wanjiku the daughter of Senior Chief Koinange. Wanjiku died in 1950 while giving birth to their daughter Jane Wambui who survived.

After Wanjiku’s death Jomo Kenyatta married his fourth and last wife Ngina Kenyatta famously known as Mama Ngina. They had four children Christine Wambui, Muhoho Kenyatta, Nyokabi Muthama and Kenya’s current President Uhuru Kenyatta.

2. Daniel Arap Moi
The second president of Kenya married Lena Moi who was initially named Helena Bommet in 1950. Together they bore eight children, five sons and three daughters. His three prominent sons are Jonathan, Philip and Gideon. Moi separated from his wife Lena in 1974 and she never appeared in the limelight again until her death in 1994.  Moi’s family life remained very private all through his reign in power. He never remarried after his wife’s death.

2. Mwai Kibaki
The third president of Kenya is married to Lucy Muthoni Kibaki. They have four children including Jimmy Kibaki, David Kagai, Tony Githinji and Judy Wanjiku. Kibaki was rumoured for a long time until to date of having a second spouse. He is alleged to have married through customary law another woman with whom he has one daughter. Kibaki has however publicly denied any links to the said woman who happens to be a politician. He famously called an urgent press conference at State House Nairobi in 2009 where he declared that he only has one wife.



1. Uhuru Kenyatta
Kenya’s fourth and current president is married to one Margret Kenyatta. They wed in 1991 after meeting her in Mombasa in 1978. They have three children together Ngina, Muhoho and Jomo. President Kenyatta and Margret will often be spotted in public functions exchanging what seems like a loving couple’s conversation. Rumors however hint that our first couple has had its fair share of ups and downs especially before Uhuru ventured into politics. Whether or not these rumors are based on fact or just how serious the marital troubles were is not known but we know we love those lovely couple moments between the president and the first lady.
