In most cases, however, African nations engineered systematic schemes that decimated the industry as G. Ayitteychronicles. What sets Kenya apart is her ability to travel this tortured path behaving like every other African media bullying nation, yet maintain one of the few, by African standards, vibrant media outlets But circumstances are changing.
Kenya emerged as a state a little over a century ago, suffered colonialism, then experimented with hardly defined ideologies for a generation, but is now set to enter another epoch—since the constitution barred Danielarap Moi from standing for another electoral term when his last one ended in In Africa where government policies are subject to the whims of the leader, this new shift will be fundamental.
With a population of about thirty million, the parchment of 45 tribal groupings, that Peter Mwaura 11 calls "separate mini-states," came under British colonial control in following the Berlin conference to partition Africa Maloba; Hachten.
He was president until In the late s people excluded from mainstream politics began to demand participation through alternative political parties. Kenya had, untilbeen a de facto one party state, but in that year Parliament enacted a law making the country a de jure one party state.
KANU assumed greater influence in setting national policies and at one time considered itself superior to parliament. By the end of the decade, civil unrest in the country forced the party, into repeal the law criminalizing multi-partism.
Today there is just a little under fifty political parties in the country.

When at last he did so he told them: The Nation had been running editorials that contradicted the debate on detentions without trial then taking place in the country—which were supported by the executive branch.
As a consequence a reporter with the paper was deported. Githii went to see Kenyatta on the matter. Personally, I found President Kenyatta very, very tolerant.
Once my newspaper printed editorials against preventive detention, which angered some members of the executive…. Eventually, I made an appointment to see the President.
Vice-President Arap Moi began to make regular phone calls to Young complaining about things in the Standard. Young found that the servility which was needed in some African quarters was not the best line with the Vice-President, and so he replied to Moi with as much vigour as Moi used to him.
Things often ended up virtually a shouting match between the two. While the media in Kenya was then foreign owned they generally supported the government.Banking Sector Reforms and the Performance of Commercial Banks in Nigeria.
