Among the tasks Mr Waita performed included oversighting implementation of flagship government projects as Head of the Presidential Delivery Unit.

Born in 1975, Waita, and advocate for the past 18 years was privileged to serve as the second State House Chief of Staff after Joseph Kinyua.

Before his appointment to this office in 2018, Mr Waita was deputizing Mr Kinyua.

Waita is a Certified Public Secretary and a member of the Law Society of Kenya. He holds a Bachelor of Law degree from the University of Sheffield and a Masters in IT and Communication Law from Queen Mary University of London.

Kwaheri Mheshimiwa Rais, na shukrani kwako kwa kunipatia nafasi hii maalum yakuwatumikia wananchi wa Kenya. Mwenyezi Mungu azidi kukuoengezea Baraka Zake!” Mr Waita wrote in his official Twitter account.

Machakos gubernatorial position will be falling vacant on August 9, when the second term of office holder Dr Alfred Mutua exits.
