Ferdinand Waititu, a controversial and an outspoken Kiambu county governor undoubtedly remains to be the luckiest politician in Kenya.
Fate often throws him into oblivion but luck and opportunity come knocking on his way. He embraces the opportunity and bounces back more vibrant and successful than he initially was.
Sixty-three out of 92 MCAs of Kiambu county assembly which met the required two-thirds majority threshold passed a motion to impeach Waititu over alleged gross misconduct and abuse of office, allegedly influencing the award of lucrative tenders to companies associated with his immediate family and relatives.
However, to Waititu this ain't the first time he has found himself in thick, and wherever fate sends him to oblivion, 'god of greatness' comes to his rescue.
Waititu's political journey began as a councillor Njiru ward, four years later he manoeuvred his way becoming deputy mayor of Nairobi.
In 2007 general elections, he contested for Embakasi parliamentary seat but narrowly lost to ODM candidate who after a few days died culminating to a by-election which Waititu won.
In 2013 Waititu contested for Nairobi gubernatorial seat but lost to Evans Kidero, he went to court to challenge Kidero's election but the court upheld Kidero's win.
Waititu them retreated to a private life till opportunity come knocking in Kabete constituency following the death of area MP George Muchai. He won the by-election.
In 2017 general election Waititu contested for Kiambu gubernatorial seat against his greatest opponent William Kabogo where he largely triumphed.
After Kiambu County Assembly successfully impeached him, Waititu's hopes hang precariously on senate and court.
If senate and court validate Kiambu County Assembly's impeachment then fate will send Waititu to political oblivion.
Will 'gods of opportunity and luck' come to his rescue and make him even more successful and powerful before 2022 general elections? Time will tell.
