Peter Ndambiri: Theology graduate who ventured into politics
Peter Ndambiri was born in Kanjinji village, Mwea East sub-county in 1966.
He attended Kanjinji Primary School and later joined Mwea Boys High School where he sat for his secondary examination in 1984.
Ndambiri then joined Central Finance (now collapsed).
He later pursued an accountancy course and ventured into business within Nairobi.
He also founded Baraka Driving School in Nairobi, which still exists. In 2013, he vied for the Mwea parliamentary seat but lost at the nomination stage to Peter Gitau.
He then retreated to Nairobi and enrolled himself at the East African School of Theology (EAST) and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in religious studies.
In 2016, he expressed interest in the seat he lost to Gitau, but dropped his ambitions when Anne Waiguru picked him as her Kirinyaga gubernatorial running mate early last year.
Ndambiri later graduated with a master’s degree in psychology from the Thika-based Gresta University.
He is married with three grown-up children.
