2. mwaii kibaki – Moi’s successor, Mwai Kibaki, is another prominent Kenyan who avoids a mobile phone as much as possible.
“An aide to Kibaki said the motivation is that the retired president believes there is value in scarcity. He rarely engages in phone conversations, even with family, said the aide,” read the report by Nation.
