Your Excellencies, Your Worship the Mayor, Representatives of International Agencies, Ladies and Gentlemen

It is a special occasion for me to be amongst such distinguished representatives of government, non-governmental and private agencies here today; special because my family and I are deeply involved in social welfare and I particularly appreciate being amongst those who commit their time, resource and effort for the benefit of mankind. I hope you will not think it presumptuous of me to offer some thoughts on questions with which we are all concerned.

Kenya: The Aga Khan Deserves a Medal - and the Gratitude of All Kenyans 2015-08-31

There is something about Kenya that many of our people don't seem to fully appreciate.

This is that we are a vibrant democracy surrounded by authoritarian states. Indeed I would say that some of the nations in our neighbourhood are "militaristic authoritarian states". Think about it for a minute.

In Tanzania, it's only now for the first time that there is a genuine chance of the opposition parties wresting power from the Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM), which has ruled since independence.

For all intents and purposes, Tanzania has been a single party state for the last 50 years.

Your Excellencies, Mr Irani, Mr Galliner, Delegates, Ladies and Gentlemen

I have rarely spoken publicly in the developing world or in the industrialised world, or indeed in any international forum about the Press. I wish to take this exceptional occasion to pay a deep personal gratitude to a truly remarkable African who was himself at one time a journalist, then who led his country's struggle for independence and who finally became the first President of Kenya, and an outstanding African statesman. I refer to Mzee Jomo Kenyatta.

"It gives me great pleasure to be with you this morning for the inauguration of the Nation Printing Plant.

<I>NATIONS</I> MOURN PIONEER EDITOR</I> - 2004-07-05

Daily Nation.jpg

Michael Curtis became Britain's youngest national newspaper editor, aged 34, when he took over Charles Dickens' old chair at the News Chronicle in Fleet Street in 1954...The intention of the Aga Khan was to buy an existing newspaper, thus avoiding the expense of acquiring a building, plant and equipment. But the English Press, owners of the Sunday Post, turned down Mr Curtis's purchase offer on grounds they could not possibly sell to 'an Asian' -- the Aga Khan.
