    Background: President Daniel Arap Moi of Kenya became assured of re-election on August 24 when he handed his nomination paper, making him the sole presidential candidate. The ruling Kenya African National Union, the country's only legal party, nominated the 59-year-old Moi for another five-year term as head of state. When he arrived to present his paper at an open-air party convention in Nairobi, he was greeted in triumphal manner by traditionally-dressed dancers carrying large photographs of him. More conventionally dressed supporters also sang and danced through the streets. President Moi, who succeeded the late President Jomo Kenyatta in 1978, had still to undergo the formality of being declared the sole parliamentary candidate for his Great Rift Valley constituency of Baringo by the local party branch on August 29.
