EABC GRIEVES DEATH OF THE 2ND PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF KENYA, THE REVIVING FATHER OF EAST AFRICAN COMMUNITY, H.E. DANIEL TOROITICH ARAP MOI.

4TH  FEBRUARY 2020, ARUSHA, TANZANIA

The East African Business Council (EABC) Chairman, Board and Management conveys deepest sympathy to the President, people of the Republic of Kenya, family and friends on the passing away of H.E. Daniel Toroitich Arap Moi, the 2nd President of the Republic Kenya.

Words cannot express enough this tragic loss of the 2nd President of the Republic of Kenya, a great Pan Africanist and a visionary leader.

 As one of the key Founding Fathers of the revival of the East African Community, he spearheaded the Agreement for the Establishment of the Permanent Tripartite Commission for East African Co-operation in 1993, leading to the re-birth of the EAC regional integration process.

His vision, commitment and dedication to embed the private sector as the engine for economic growth is evident in Chapter 25, Article 127, 128 & 129 of the Treaty for the Establishment of the East African Community which states on Partner States’ responsibilities towards enabling the private sector to thrive. His passing is a great loss to the people of East Africa and the business community in the region.

He remains strong in our hearts and it’s our duty to keep his vision of a borderless East Africa alive; for the economic growth and prosperity of our beloved East African Community.

The East African Business Council stands in solidarity with the family and all East Africans and Kenyans in particular, during this difficult moment of as we celebrate and remember many achievements associated with H.E. President Arap Moi.

May the soul of Mzee Moi, rest in eternal peace.
