That is what the people of...

Zimbabwe (15 Jul 2003)

Benjamin Mpaka in Tanzania said Mugabe was "a champion of democracy" and added that "the people of Zimbabwe have spoken...

Commission for Africa (14 Mar 2005)

Vincent Cable: May I ask, as somebody who used to work for the Kenya Treasury in the years before it was looted by Arap Moi and his associates, why the Government are undermining the drive against corruption by exempting British businesses from the obligation to declare the identity of their commission agents and financial intermediaries when they apply for Export Credits Guarantee Department assistance and...

Lord Alton of Liverpool: addition to the point made by the noble Lord, Lord Steel, this represents a tragedy for Africa generally, because so many people looked at the peaceful transition from the government of Daniel arap Moi as an example of how regimes could be changed through democracy and the ballot box; and that this retrograde step will therefore reflect badly not just on Kenya but on the democratic...

Kenya ( 4 Dec 2007)

Lord Oakeshott of Seagrove Bay: ...came up when he is in Darfur. I know that he will follow the debate with great interest. In almost half a century since independence, Kenya has had only three presidents—Jomo Kenyatta, Daniel arap Moi and now Mwai Kibaki.
