Kenyan president says ex-president Daniel arap Moi has died

Published: Updated:

Former Kenyan President Daniel arap Moi has died, broadcaster Citizen Television said on Tuesday.

He came to power in 1978, upon the death of President Jomo Kenyatta, having been vice-president until then.

Diplomats said an attempted coup four years later transformed him into a tough autocrat from a cautious, insecure leader.
