Senior Counsel David Mwaure Waihiga is a long-serving advocate with experience of more than 35 years having completed his Law degree in 1981 at the University of Nairobi.

Mwaure is also a holder of a master's in leadership from the International Leadership University and is currently pursuing a PhD in the same field.

“We want to tell Kenyans that we are the only coalition that will fight corruption and fight it completely, these others cannot fight corruption because if you look at the background they are joined at the hip, the men and women who right now are calling themselves big horses this are people who have been there for the last 10, 20 years,” said the Agapo Party Presidential candidate.

Mwaure who is an ordained minister of the gospel is not new in the political field having registered his Agano Party 16 years ago. He has previously vied for different elective seats at the constituency and county levels.

The Senior Counsel who has vowed to slay the dragon of corruption is making his second stab at the presidency having first offered himself for the position on 25th October 2010.

He later withdrew from the race and instead ran for Governor of Lamu County where he has a law firm. He has practised law there for many years and has been involved in community social initiatives on matters, of justice.

“We in Agano are saying it is time for change, we are saying it is time for Kenya to have a new leadership, we are also saying Kenya will not go anywhere if we elect the same leaders who have been there miaka nenda, miaka rudi, it is time to bring to the end the curse and practice of corruption and scandals, when we see some of our competitors we see NYS, KEMSA, Ministry of Health, Maize, Anglo-leasing and we know we represent Kenya and we are saying with new leadership we want to change that,” says Mwaure.

In 2010, Mwaure gave legal advice to the church when they raised concerns about certain clauses of the 2010 constitution. He now says if elected his government will seek to recover all stolen wealth stashed abroad and locally, address the dire economic crisis facing the country and be a voice of the voiceless.
