You are a firebrand politician-lawyer who, for a long time, has been a thorn in the flesh of most of the regimes Kenya has had since independence. You have been an MP, Senator and a Cabinet minister but I don’t think there is any tangible development that the people of Ugenya, Siaya and generally Kenyans can associate with you in your public life. Why do you offer pro-bono legal services on very divisive and dangerous issues in this country like it does not matter to you?
As a Cabinet minister, I created land registries in modern buildings in Siaya, Bondo and Ukwala. New districts were created, health centres built and modernised. I accomplished a lot in the education sector, infrastructure development and supply of electricity. Then there was the democracy and human rights projects that removed political tyranny and brought about the birth of the new Constitution. I represented many Kenyans from across the country without discrimination. I stood firm with Kibaki against Moi when few lawyers would act for him against Kanu, and acted for Uhuru when Kibaki wanted to take Kanu away from him and Ruto and give it to Biwott. I have always found myself defending the underdog. But I find it odd to talk about myself in these terms. I would rather not.
