“When you are in active politics, you spent a lot of time away from your family and the pressure and expectations are just too much but life outside politics is sweet and enjoyable because I don’t have to wake up at 3am and sleep past midnight in the name of attending meetings. Now I have a lot of time to attend to my family issues and personal business and I love it,” said Kosgey.
