Since he retired, President Mwai Kibaki has managed to maintain a low-profile lifestyle away from the eyes of the public as he battles old age complications.
Many Kenyans have remained with questions on what could have happened if Kibaki had not been sworn in that night. There was a countrywide belief that President Kibaki did not win the highly contested 2007 General elections that led to lots of bloodsheds.
Kibaki's eldest son Jimmy Kibaki has opened up on behind-the-scenes happenings leading to his father's presidency. According to Jimmy, very many people were not sure who won the elections including Judge Krueger of the Ringera commission.
According to Jimmy, there is a possibility that his father won the elections ahead of Raila Odinga by a very small margin. Jimmy also revealed that his father was not willing to take part in the Grand Coalition government.
He revealed that the decision to swear in his father was reached to avoid a constitutional crisis that was Looming.
