The Path to Kaliech

by William Odongo Omamo

The Path to KALIECH are the memoirs of Dr. William Odongo Omamo, a member of the first generation of Kenyan African technocrats. In it, he describes his journey from his childhood, to his struggles to acquire education as part of the pioneer O level class of Maseno School, to his rise to Cabinet Minister in both the Jomo Kenyatta and Moi Governments.

Themes featuring prominently in it include the cultural milieu of his village and childhood, his challenges acquiring an education all the way to University during pre-independence Kenya, his transition from education to government service, and finally his travails in politics.

Readers will get to know answers to the questions about his much talked about relationship with Jaramogi Oginga Odinga, untold stories of the Jomo Kenyatta and Moi government political intrigues, as well as his well known oratory during his public life, and the origin of his popular nickname, KALIECH.
