During his two- term reign at the helm of the country's leadership, retired President Mwai Kibaki had a team of some of the big-name politicians Kenya has ever produced.

Kibaki who ruled Kenya from 2003 to 2013 is hailed by many as the greatest President Kenya has ever produced. It is therefore not surprising that some of his ministers are today still holding powerful positions in Government; both elective and appointive.

In the Senate, there are at least four Senators who were very instrumental in the Kibaki regime having served as Cabinet Ministers:

1. Moses Wetangula: The Bungoma Senator was an influential member of the Kibaki Government.

During his time in Government, Wetangula served in the Foreign Affairs Ministry before being moved to the Trade docket.

As a member of Cabinet, Orengo was from Prime Minister Raila Odinga ODM side.

3. Sam Ongeri: During his time in the Kibaki Government, the Kisii Senator was in the Ministry of Education. He also served in the Foreign Affairs docket.

4. Margaret Kamar: Uasin Gishu Senator was also a member of the Kibaki adminstration having served in his second and final term on office.

A member of the Orange party, Prof. Kamar served as Minister of Higher Education.

5. Ochilo Ayacko: During President Kibaki's first term in office, the Migori Senator served as Sports Minister before being moved to the powerful Mining Ministry.
