Joseph Murumbi Biography »
Joseph Zuzarte Murumbi (1911–1990) was Kenya's second Vice-President from May 1965 until December 1966. He was a child of a Goan trader and a Maasai woman, and he spent the first 16 years of his life in India. The declaration of the state of emergency on October 20, 1952, saw the detention of the top two levels of leadership within the Kenya African Union (KAU), and Murumbi found himself thrust into the center of the party's leadership, as acting secretary-general.
