Chief Justice David Maraga’s life has not been a walk in the park. Many knew little about him until he nullified President Uhuru Kenyatta’s win in the 2017 Presidential race, a move that led to the rise in the political temperatures of this nation.

Speaking at Nyambaria Boys High School in Nyamira County during the institution’s alumni service, Maraga, a staunch the Seventh Day Adventist, said that he is not proud of his past.  Maraga recently opened up about his struggle with alcoholism before he made a u-turn in life. 

For more than 30 years, Maraga, who hails from Gusiiland, walk from one part of Kenya to another just to quench his thirst. He revealed that he could not stay for days without taking a bottle. Maraga said that he had to narrate his story in order to inspire youths from different parts of the nation. 

The CJ confessed that he thought he was living well until he realized he was losing a lot in his life. It took him many years to discover the importance of being sober in life. He also said that it was difficult for him to imagine life without alcohol.

 “Generally, I thought I was living well, enjoying life, drinking and all that. What bothered me every day was my inner battle to quit the bottle, one week after the other,” he said, as quoted by Daily Nation.
