Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader Musalia Mudavadi was a smart student during his university days which earned him an immediate job after graduation.
The ANC was first employed by the National Housing Corporation, where he worked as property valuer after he graduated with first-class honours from the University of Nairobi (UoN).
He had joined UoN in 1980 to take Land Economics and graduated four years later.
Mudavadi's spokesperson and personal assistant Kibisu Kabatesi on Tuesday in an exclusive interview with Kenyans.co.ke offered that his boss begun from a humble background before.
"He was working as a valuer with the National Housing Corporation immediately after he got out of campus where he pursued Bachelor of Arts degree, majoring in Land Economics," narrated Kabatesi.
While his office was based in Nairobi, Mudavadi traversed the country by width and breadth to render services as a land valuer.
"He mostly operated from Nairobi, but with the corporation being a government body, he was tasked with valuing real estate property and land all over the country, so he would get out of Nairobi every now and again, but Nairobi was his base of operation," Kabatesi recalled.
He joined politics after the death of his father and was elected into Parliament in 1989 during the reign of retired President Daniel Moi.
He was appointed Minister for Supplies and Marketing.
