Former State House chief of staff and director, Presidential Delivery Unit, Nzioka Waita ( Photo Courtesy).
At one point in his life, Nzioka Waita was a serious power broker at State House. Though he had been hired as a technocrat on the back of a successful career in the corporate world, he would end up playing power roles.
As State House chief of staff during the former regime of retired President Uhuru Kenyatta, Waita was one of the most powerful men around the President at the time.
Further, by doubling up presidential delivery unit boss, Waita had the ears of the thr former President.
Bit in the run up to the August 9 general election, he joined the murky world of politics and declared his bid for Machakos Governor position.
While running on little-known Chama Cha Uzalendo party, Waita was ready to turn the tables against Wiper's Wavinya Ndeti, who was being backed by the region's political kingpin, former Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka.
By openly clashing with Kalonzo on several occasions, Waita was setting himself for failure. And when the final results were announced, he had been whitewashed by the former Kathiani MP.
Now in the political cold on the back of that humiliating election defeat, what does future hold for this man who at one point ran the show at State House?
