Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka became Kenya's youngest Member of Parliament when he was first elected in 1985 at the age of 31. He went on to serve in public office for 28 uninterrupted years until March 2013 when his coalition lost the elections. 


During this long period, he served Kenyans in many capacities including as Minister for Foreign Affairs and Vice President. Against All Odds, the story of his life- from the time of his birth in semi-arid and poverty stricken Mwingi district in Eastern Kenya, where bandits roamed the villages killing and maiming almost at will, to rise to the top of national politics- is an account of survival, resilience, betrayal, courage and hope. 


The story documents his crucial role as a peacemaker from his early days in school and later his impact on the Sudan and Somalia peace negotiations. He is candid about his fears, anxieties and the nerve-wracking intricacies of Kenyan public life. This is the tale of a man determined to walk the straight and narrow path of truthfulness, honesty, and integrity. 


Caleb Atemi is a former News Editor with the Nation Media Group. A renowned writer and media trainer; communications and public relations consultant; Aterni is working on other biographies detailing the lives and times of prominent Kenyan personalities.
