Ruto is making same political mistakes that Raila made, says Kibaki insider

What you need to know:

  • Mr Waweru was at the centre of the euphoric 2002 Narc campaigns that swept Kanu out of power.
  • He says Mr Odinga would perhaps have been the fifth president had he not started campaigning while President Kibaki was still in office.


Away from his accounting exploits at leading auditing firm Ernst and Young through his star performance at Kenya Revenue Authority, Michael Gitau Waweru is also a political animal who has played key, if behind-the-scenes, roles in Kenya’s politics since the return of multipartyism in 1992.
