He is one of the longest serving civil servants in the country having been in Government since the days of President Jomo Kenyatta.
With a career in the civil service spanning over half a century, Kenya Ports Authority chairperson Marsden Madoka has served under four Presidents: Jomo Kenyatta, Daniel Arap Moi, Mwai Kibaki and Uhuru Kenyatta.
A former military man, Madoka kicked off his colourful career in the public service as Aide de Camp of Mzee Jomo Kenyatta.
After retiring from the military, he joined politics and was elected as Mwatate MP in 1997 on a KANU ticket.
He would immediately become an influential member of President Moi government where he first served as Minister of State for Provincial administration before moving to the influential Foreign Affairs Ministry at the tail end of KANU regime.
He was reelected as Mwatate MP for a second term in 2002 but lost in 2007.
Since then, he has held several influential Government positions including as Chairman of the Kenya Ports Authority board.
At 78 years now, Madoka is not done yet with his public service career.
