He was once a top student nationwide, lecturer, MP, and put Kenya on the international map through his ozone layer research work.
He later authored a speech on ozone layer, that won then President Moi standing ovation at the Ozone Layer Conference in Brazil, in 1989.
He was once a University Lecturer and Vice Chancellor of Moi University.
Thereafter, he ventured into politics, of which he became MP of the then Rangwe Constituency in 1989 on a KANU ticket and got appointed as an Assistant Minister for Environment.
