Waruru Kanja on Jaramogi: The Best President Kenya Never Had

Even in retirement, Kanja is still a maverick

I just stumbled across this Standard interview of Waruru Kanja Kenya's erstwhile politician from Nyeri. What I found most interesting in these days of Kibaki and Raila were these comments:

He believes Jaramogi Oginga Odinga was the best president Kenya never had.

He remembers when working in Kisumu as a weight and measures officer, he would be sent to deliver Odinga's letters to other freedom fighters.

"Jaramogi was the only man who was well placed to lead this country, but us Kenyans we denied him votes just because he was a Luo. I still hold on to his ideologies of communism," he adds.


"Whether I am circumcised or not, should not be used as the judging line for leadership skills."
Wow, plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose
