Wangari Maathai was one of a kind. She survived multiple beatings, teargas, and arrests -- all at the hands of the Kenyan government under Daniel arap Moi. In spite of everything she never gave up. She was a unifying figure in a country that has been and continues to be deeply divided. Had she been able to ascend to the Kenyan presidency the lives of all wananchi would have been so much better. Mama Miti, we will always remember you and love you!
