A son of Kenya, Sen. Ledama is a results-oriented leader with a proven track-record in attracting investments to promote social development and economic growth.  A dynamic and persuasive communicator, Ledama has used his training in political science and communications to contribute to the current discourse on Kenyan politics and development through a weekly column in the Star (Weekend Edition) and his recent campaign for Governor of Narok County. He is currently the Senate of Kenya minority whip.

Born to Meiteganyu OleNchoshoi and Siminta Enole Torome, Ledama grew up in Narok.  His maternal grandfather James Ole Torome fought in the 1st and 2nd World War and worked as an engineer for the British colonial government.  Raised by his parents and his grandfather, with whom he spent most of his school holidays taking care of the family cows and goats, Ledama attended Olesankale Primary School and Narok High School.  Following his graduation in 1993, Ledama was employed as an assistant producer for Reuters, African Journal, a weekly news and current affairs TV programme based in Nairobi.
