"It gives me great pleasure to be with you this morning for the inauguration of the Nation Printing Plant. This ultra-modern printing facility makes use of the latest technology in the printing and publishing industry. The investment of seven hundred and fifty million shillings in this project is a show of the confidence that the Nation Group and indeed Your Highness, have in the future of this country. It's therefore, an important occasion for the Nation Group, the publishing industry and indeed, for Kenya.

SPEECH BY PRESIDENT DANIEL ARAP MOI AT LUNCHEON HOSTED IN THE HONOR OF HIS HIGHNESS THE AGA KHAN VISIT TO NAIROBI-1997-03-11

Your Highness, Kenya and Aga Khan Development Network share a long history of co-operation. The Aga Khan Development Network has for a long time supported our development efforts by promoting socio-economic development in various fields such as health, education and rural development.

Extract of a Speech of H.H. The Aga Khan made at a luncheon hosted by President Daniel Arap Moi of Kenya-1997-03-11

I have been following with great interest the many positive developments that have been taking place under your Excellency's leadership and I have shared your concern when the country has been occasionally faced with challenges such as the present drought. And I am always impressed by that strong sense of national response which carries you past the trials you have to cross and back again to the path of hope and progress.

LECTURE BY MOWLANA HAZAR IMAM EDUCATION FOR DEVELOPMENT-1966-11-24

The leaders of all African Countries today are faced with the need to raise the living standards of the mass of their peoples from mere subsistence level to a point where men and women can develop the full potential of their minds and bodies. The problem in Africa assumes urgent political dimensions if only because expectations are so much higher than they used to be. This is quite understandable when you remember the hopes that were raised during the battle for independence.

His Highness the Aga Khan

Born Prince Karim, in Geneva, Switzerland in 1936, the present Aga Khan spent some of his early childhood in Nairobi, Kenya. He was actually a student at Harvard when, in 1957, he succeeded his grandfather, Sir Sultan Mahomed Shah Aga Khan to the Imamat of some 15 million Shia Ismaili Muslims. Following a year’s leave of absence for official visits to Muslim communities around the world, the Aga Khan returned to Harvard as an undergraduate to complete his AB honours degree in Islamic History.

Fellow Graduates,

I thank you for your warm welcome, and am deeply moved by the honour that this renowned institution of learning has done of conferring upon me the degree of Doctor of Laws, honoris causa.

MAWLANA HAZAR IMAM ON LONDON VISIT: HIGHLIGHTS LINKAGES BETWEEN JAMATS OF THE WEST AND DEVELOPING WORLD-1994-08-14

Mawlana Hazar Imam's memorable visit to London in August this year brought together jamats from around the world in a celebration of the ties that bind the community across frontiers and of our Imam-e-Zaman's affection and concern for the jamat worldwide. It was a happy, instructive inspiring visit that highlighted the resilience, institutional strength and commitment to the developing world of a jam well-established in the West.

President Sachedina, Leaders of the Jamat

Before I say things which are important I would like to remind you of the speech before dinner and ask you to make sure that there are no stray lions under your table. I was as unaware that I would speak after dinner as that ill-fated lion.
