Moi’s tribe dominated the army as Museveni’s in Uganda but Kibaki changed all that


Daniel arap Moi The story reported on the link below is fascinating.
http://www.afroarticles.com/article-dashboard/Article/Untold-story-of-the-1982-coup-attempt-in-Kenya–Night-meeting-that-saved-Moi-presidency/211544
It was reported sometimes back in Kenya’s the Daily Nation. Mohamed and Sawe became CGS. Njoroge became Army commander under Kibaki and is now Kenya’s ambassador to Israel. The other majors do not seem to have risen higher.

Not only did Mr Moi become a dictator but also seniority in the army broke down so much so that junior Kalenjin officers could not salute senior officers from other ethnicities.

Major General Kariuki was the air force commander at the time. He was jailed but became Chairman of Kenya Communications Commission by Kibaki. There was claim that the senior army commander were then ones poised to overthrow Mr. Moi, but were beaten by their juniors, whose indiscipline cost them dearly. Many along with university students went to rape Indian women in the nearby Parklands.

Back then it was Mr. Wetangula, the current foreign Minister who was defending coup leaders and those accused of complicity.
The late Kanyotu was onto the air force coup leader but Mr. Moi could not give him permission. Rumour has it that Moi wanted to disband the air force because he did not like its composition.

The army during Mr. Moi was made up of mostly Kalenjin but the imbalance was sort of corrected when Mr. Kibaki came in. Kalenjin areas had their quota slashed while other ethnicities that had been cheated had their quota up.

That Major Njoroge became Major General and later Lt General and Army commander. Him and the immediate former CGS, general Kianga from Ukambani had to purge all known elements who could not salute their seniors on the basis of ethnicity.
The Sawe family suffered a loss when the widow died under mysterious circumstances -burnt beyond recognition.

From what I have heard ethnic parity has been restored in the Kenyan forces. With the Kamba -believed to be the most loyal-once again claiming their rightful place.

Kenya changed after that coup. I got to Nairobi in 1983 when things were still bad and Mr. Moi came up with his Mwakenya to arrest lectures, lawyers, university students and politicians.

Nyayo house had just been completed and Kenyans were being tortured there. You had to be wary of two people in old coats because they were most likely police or special branch.

I remember an incident when they confronted me and started asking me whom I had gone to visit at Ufungamano House near the University. They had followed me all the way from the university area towards Kenyatta Avenue. Many university students were informers so you had to be careful when talking to them even in their Library where I used to go and read.

Moi’s Kenya was bad. Actually that is where YKM’s Uganda is at today. The recent arrest of so called 300 rebels in uganda is similar to Mwakenya.
