Soaring Above The Storms of Passion

Word from the author

Most enthralling book yet

Musalia Mudavadi defies simple definitions and final conclusions. His complex character eludes placement in hackneyed pigeonholes and phraseology. Accordingly, different people distinguish him each after their own labels and even libels. Now in this volume, the man behind the mask lifts the veil for the first time, to give a glimpse into his real world. His story is at once the story of growing up in his family under the patriarch that was his father, Moses Substone Budamba Mudavadi, and his own tour of duty in turbulent public spaces and times. Catapulted into Kenya’s stormy politics at the youthful age of 28, he learns to carve his own path, taking his own decisions and stoically staying with them, for better or worse. In the end, this is the compelling story of an individual of character told by himself. He invites fellow wayfarers “who should chance to be walking in the direction of my footsteps,” that they should “find useful lessons that could encourage them to take heart again, in the billowing seas and storms of life.”

"It appeared that some forces within the Office of the President would be strongly opposed to the things that we agreed upon in these sessions. State House was openly casting aspersions on things emanating from the Premier’s supervision. It was as if they wanted to push us out of government in protest. I often wondered how fast people could forget and how short sighted they could be. Did they really imagine that if they pushed us out of government it would be business as usual?."
