(Last Updated On: April 22, 2022)

Former Kenya’s President Mwai Kibaki, who ended President Daniel Moi’s 24-year rule, has died at the age of 90, State House announced on Friday.

Kenya President Uhuru Kenyatta issued a presidential proclamation on Friday announcing the passing on of the retired President who also served as Kenya’s fourth Vice President.

Kibaki ended the late President Moi’s more than two decades rules in 2002 when he took over power as Kenya’s third President.

“We remember the values by which he lived, the ideals he embraced, his dignity and diligence, his candour and concern for the well-being of all Kenyans,” said President Kenyatta on Friday.

“His contributions as minister of finance and vice president saw Kenya’s economy grow steadily fuelled by a commodities boom as well as fiscal and monetary policies that were the backbone of his economic philosophy.”
