Njonjo was the son of the late Josiah Njonjo, a colonial paramount chief and one of the first hand collaborators of British rule in Kenya.
Being the Attorney General in the Moi's government, Njonjo thought that the Kalenjins were only good at herding cattle not in leadership. Despite of president Moi being a Kalenjin, he made Njonjo to believe he was his co-president.
Njonjo could often speak about “his government” until in the year (1982 ) when a coup broke up between the government and the opposition. President Moi termed him to be a traitor for using external powers to overthrow the government. Little did he knew that (1984) was his year after trying to overthrow the government. His political career ended abruptly after being dethroned as the Attorney General.
