About this submission

Even after the recent demise of Daniel Moi, the second and longest-serving President of Kenya, the wounds he inflicted on those who disagreed with him during his rule remain fresh. This is a portrait of one of the victims who underwent physical and psychological torture during the Moi era, and who still feels resentful decades later.
