The curtains may have fallen on Amos Wako, the former long serving Attorney General and an insider during the late President Daniel Arap Moi's final years in office.
At the height of his tenure as the country's chief legal advisor, Wako was one of the most powerful around. With Moi's ear, the man from Matayos was one of the big boys in the Nyayo regime.
Even after the exit of Moi from power in 2002, Wako continued to serve for nine more years.By the time he was pushed out of office after the promulgation of the 2010 Constitution, he had served as Attorney General for a record 21 years.
In 2013, he joined politics and won the Busia senator position on an ODM party ticket. He was easily re-elected in 2017.
But in 2022, he was not in the race for any elective position. As a result, he is today not holding any position. Could it be that he has quietly decided to exit the stage and enjoy his retirement at home?
At 77 years, Wako is at the sunset years of his illustrious career; first as a civil servant and later as a politician. Perhaps, this is the best time for him to exit the stage.
