By JOHN KAMAUMore by this AuthorIt is only after you mention Kenneth Stanley Njindo Matiba that you start to get the inside story of the Nyayo regime. There were many dare­devils who tried to stop the Moi regime — but most of them had no clout and no money. The entry of mil­lionaire Kenneth Matiba changed the matrix. While the High Court had or­dered that Matiba get a com­pen­sa­tion of Sh978 mil­lion for dam­ages and vi­o­la­tions he suf­fered and for ex­penses he in­curred for his med­i­ca­tion, Matiba died before he could get fully compensated, and the mat­ter is still pend­ing in court. “I had kept a low pro­file and re­fused to en­gage in pol­i­tics, yet I was be­ing har­assed,” Matiba said on why he joined the call for multiparty pol­i­tics.
