However, over the past 20 years, two notable key politicians have tactfully managed to sail through the political turbulence and have never tasted a defeat in elective positions they have contested for.
The second in command has never lost an election since 2007. From his unprecedented win in 2007 where he led the ODM wave that swept the Rift Valley and all the seats despite former President Daniel Moi KANU influence in the region to 2013 and 2017 win under the Jubilee party.
On the other hand, Kiraitu Murungi holds a record of six consecutive wins. Murungi has won each election with a different party and has served as an MP, a Senator, and now as a Governor.
In 1992, Kiraitu Murungi joined politics and won the South Imenti parliamentary seat on a Ford Kenya party ticket before re-elected in 1997 on a Democratic Party ticket; in 2002 on a NARC ticket, and in 2007 on a PNU ticket.
He latest used his own party known as the "Mbus party" which he used to clinch the Meru senatorial seat before landing the Governor seat in 2017.
