Character is judged by how people behave, but even more importantly how they respond under attack or when under pressure.
When a person chooses to defend themselves by blaming somebody else, then it becomes very clear what kind of person that individual is.
In a public lecture at the University of Nairobi (where Moi would have been a much more engaging guest lecturer in my view), retired President Kibaki opened his mouth to hit out at a man without whom he would NEVER have survived the presidency.
My late dad had a lot of respect for Kibaki and I have to admit that I too respected the man when he was in the opposition. Well, the good news is that Mwai Kibaki's true character has come out very clearly for all to see. And I have NOT even started analyzing the Kibaki presidency and how it took the country 100 years backwards so that the man with a bald head left a much more tribally divided country than what was handed to him by President Moi.
And if you still had doubts a recent Kumekucha poll clinches it. We asked Kenyans a simple question; who was the better president, dictator Moi or polished Kibaki?
The results were;
