This is the story of a boy with the convictions of a Buffalo and the faith of a child. Miringu, in simple yet captivating language, lets the reader into the arena that is the murky waters of politics as he traces his motivation to join a career that has long been considered a retirement plan.

The message in the book is a clear one to any youth in Africa and around the world: you can be whatever you want to be so long as you remain focused on your goals. Don’t be discouraged because of your youth. Miringu finds hope in the words of 1 Timothy 4:12- "Let no one despise your youth but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith and purity."

This is a journey of hope, of courage and of becoming.
