Visionary African politician Tom Mboya didn't live to see the first black US president. But we owe him a debt of gratitude

by Stephen Kinzer guardian.co.uk, Sunday 8 February 2009

Who made Barack Obama president? Like anyone who reaches such a pinnacle of success, he owes his triumph to many people, including some he never met. One of them was Tom Mboya, a visionary African politician without whom Obama might never have been born, much less won the presidency.

When Mboya was assassinated in 1969 at the age of 38, it seemed that a highly promising life had been left unfulfilled. No one could have imagined that a project he conceived would result in the conception of Barack Obama. Mboya was never able to realise his dream of a humane, post-racial democracy in his native Kenya, but he made a decisive contribution to creating one in the US.

During the 1960s, if an American knew about one young African leader, it was likely to be Mboya. He was featured on the cover of Time magazine, toured the US several times and spoke to packed houses in places like Carnegie Hall. He met not only with American political figures from Eleanor Roosevelt to Richard Nixon, but also civil rights leaders like Thurgood Marshall, Roy Wilkins, Martin Luther King and A Philip Randolph, who became one of his mentors.

Mboya had an even higher profile in Africa. He began his career as a trade unionist, attended Oxford, and upon his return plunged into politics. At the age of 28, with the support of Kwame Nkrumah, the president of Ghana, he was elected chairman of the All-African People's Congress, which coordinated independence movements in African countries. He headed the Kenyan delegation that negotiated the country's independence from Britain in 1963, and then became minister of justice. He quickly emerged as the country's most charismatic politician. That sealed his fate. His assassination is presumed to have been engineered by the country's power elite, which was headed by President Jomo Kenyatta and future president Daniel arap Moi.

In the decades since his death, Mboya has faded from memory, another inspiring figure who might have helped lead Africa toward stability but was cut down too soon. Today, though, the world should pause to remember him.

During the late 1950s, Mboya developed a plan to send gifted young Kenyans to study in the US. He could find no one to finance it until senator John F Kennedy, chairman of the Senate subcommittee on Africa, agreed to give him a $100,000 grant from a family foundation. The American activist Cora Weiss, later to become a prominent leader of protests against the Vietnam war, worked with Mboya to arrange the first airlift of 81 Kenyan students in 1959.

More than a few of those 81 Kenyans went on to highly productive careers, among them the environmentalist Wangari Maathai, winner of the 2004 Nobel Peace Prize. One who did not was an aspiring economist named Barack Obama. He became a strong Mboya supporter after returning from his studies, spoke to Mboya moments before he was assassinated in front of a Nairobi pharmacy, testified at the trial of the alleged assassin and died in 1982 after a troubled life. He had not left any palpable mark on the world or so it seemed.

While at the University of Hawaii, though, Obama met and married Ann Dunham, a teenage student from Kansas. Their marriage did not last, but it produced a son who is now the president of the United States. They would never have met without Mboya's airlift project.

Many Africans look back on Mboya's early death as a devastating blow to prospects for African development. He is usually remembered as a brilliant figure who never had the chance to shape history that his early career seemed to promise. Today, though, Mboya looks quite different. One of his projects it must have seemed a relatively small one at the time bore fruit in a spectacular way. His role in helping to create Barack Obama means that, 40 years after his murder, he has had at least as much impact on the world as he would have had if he had lived to lead Kenya.

Anyone thrilled with the prospect of President Obama, and even the president himself, should lift a glass in grateful memory of Tom Mboya.


Hongera to Mr Tom Mboya, God used him to change the world, too bad he didnt live to see it.

Description: IPS is America's premier radical left-wing think tank, funded by the heirs of the Faberge cosmetics fortune and staffed by capable researchers and analysts from dozens of disciplines. Entirely dedicated to opposing American policies -- if it's American policy, IPS is agin it.

IPS is active in the anti-Exxon Mobil campaigns, helping coordinate activism surrounding annual shareholder meetings. IPS Executive Director John Cavanagh is a key board member of the global anti-capitalist network, International Forum on Globalization.

In its own words: "Mission: DEVELOPING ALTERNATIVE STRATEGIES TO U.S. POLICIES. A 'think tank' for progressive research and action to create a more responsible society. At a time when other think tanks celebrate the virtues of unrestrained greed, unlimited wealth, and unregulated markets, IPS is striving to create a more responsible society - one built around the values of justice, nonviolence, sustainability, and decency. IPS, as I.F. Stone once said, is "an Institute for the rest of us."

Translated, the IPS goal is to create a society in which IPS restrains your personal freedom, IPS limits your wealth, and IPS tell you what you may buy and sell.

"They would never have met without Mboya's airlift project." That goes the same for my parents.

Thanks for the info about Cora Weiss.
