Kenya’s President Daniel Arap Moi was in Washington on March 12th, 1987. He got the media excited and the journalists clicked away for much longer when Mr Moi met his host, Ronald Reagan in the oval office. Journalists had unfettered access to the two and one could be heard shouting out a question about Kenya’s human rights record.

After holding bilateral meetings for two hours with Moi, President Reagan praised the Moi’s efforts and in particular complimented him for the way he handled the drought that had swept through the African continent in 1984.

Kenya, he said was exemplary in the way it handled the devastating dry spell.

They held meetings in the Cabinet Room,  walked along Colonnade towards the Residence and had  Lunch with Cocktails in both the State Dining Room and Family Dining Room. The two held a press conference on the South Lawn on March 12, 1987. “Kenya is among the few African countries with food surplus,” said President Moi.

The sooner apartheid ends in Spouth Africa, the better, he added.

In Moi’s entourage were cabinet ministers Robert Ouko, Elijah Mwangale, Nicholas Biwott, George Saitoti (all deceased) and Maina Wanjigi. The Kenyan president looked jovial and so did his host.
