I was born and brought up in Difathas, Kirinyaga County – a small sleeping village in one of the many forgotten corners of our republic – as Kenya’s multiparty democracy frenzy of early 90s gained momentum.

A progressive democrat, I believe that Africa’s problems can best be tackled using African solutions.

To me, a good government is one which strives at all times to ensure it avails to its citizens, the best opportunity to attain their full potential.

Kenya is my country and motherland whose sovereignty I am always ready to defend; even if it is by paying the ultimate price.

I am never afraid of constructively criticizing any idea that does not resonate with my school of thought.

I admire Nelson Mandela as an icon of freedom, Fidel Castro for selflessly championing a noble cause whose results will be felt for generations to come, Kwame Nkrumah for his visionary Pan-Africanism ideas, Barack Obama for his exceptional ability to inspire hope even in times of adversity and Mwai Kibaki who stands out as the best example of what a combination of intelligence, hard work, resilience and fortune can bring forth.

I am an avid reader who devours all legible literature. Even in the most boring book is a good idea tucked somewhere between the pages. There is power in information.

The two most educative pieces of literature I have ever come across are: the Desiderata, a 1927 prose poem by American writer Max Ehrmann and the Book of Ecclesiastes found in the Holy Bible.

Kenya ni Mimi, Kenya ni Wewe, Kenya ni Sisi. Mkenya Daima.

The State of The Nation is Strong.

“I was not born with a hunger to be free. I was born free-free in every  way that I could know. Free to run in the fields near my mother’s hut, free to swim in the clear stream that ran through my village, free to roast mealies under stars and ride the broad backs of slow moving bulls” – Nelson Mandela, Long Walk to Freedom.
