NAIROBI, Kenya — After his win in a chaotic election, President Daniel Arap Moi is set for inauguration today in a ceremony to be attended by other East African leaders.
Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni and Tanzanian President Benjamin Mkapa will fly to this capital for the ceremony at Uhuru Park, Kenyan security officials said.
Moi, 73, will be sworn in for a fifth and, he vows, final term he says will be devoted to eradicating corruption and promoting national unity and development for the country of 28 million.
Electoral Commission figures show Moi won with 40.1% of the vote, beating opposition leader Mwai Kibaki, who had 33.1%.
Yet the election has left the nation divided. Kibaki, a member of the Kikuyu ethnic group that voted overwhelmingly against Moi, said Sunday that he was convinced he was the real election winner.
